Population 84. Ask if they have a store, answer? No. No gas either or post office or police or any need to register your car or boat. Everybody is out on the river today searching for the couple who have been missing for two weeks. They found the boat and put a blue tarp on the shore where they did. Husband and wife were duck hunting, black ducks they said, probably white-winged scoters, we've seen a lot of them. The guy liked to drive fast and they were not wearing life vests. I was greeted when I climbed the bank by a couple kids who showed me where their grandfather used to have a store and then we went into the village council building, a community center that is the hub of town. There were three guys carving up a moose hindquarter on a plastic folding table in the middle of the room. The older kid gave me one of those frozen popcicles that are shaped like a tube and you squeeze up from the bottom, it was cherry. I saw one pickup truck, about twenty 4 wheelers, a few ski-do's laying in the grass, a lot of old boats in various states, and a picnic table on the bank set up so that you can watch people come and go. Not much goes on here and without a store or a road anywhere not many people come into town. I need to find out more about the curious history of this place because it combines coastal Innuit culture, gold mining, and Japanese explorers. I saw some cool birds, lots of wild roses, huge moose antlers nailed to log house walls, a couple of smoldering stinky trash barrels, and walked every street in town. We only stayed a little there a little while, the little kid asked me if that meant we would leave in 3 days and I said no, later today. He also asked me if I wanted to play baseball with him.
