Nature Journaling Retreat…

…in the Kenai Fjords

“Here skies are clearer and deeper and, for the greater wonders they reveal, a thousand times more eloquent of the eternal mystery than those of softer lands.”

Rockwell Kent

Join author Erin McKittrick and artist Kim McNett for a nature drawing and writing workshop in the majestic Kenai Fjords.

We will meet in Seward and water taxi to Kayakers Cove for a two-night, three-day stay.
