About me

Location Eagle River, Alaska
Introduction My name is Natalie and I live way up in the Chugach Mountains outside of Eagle River, Alaska. Originally from suburbs of big cities on the east coast, I settled down in Alaska in 1999. To document my lingering culture shock ten years later, I have decided to write this blog.
