Hiking

From mid-June to mid-October, Dan Binde of Minnesota hiked from Yakutat, in the northern reaches of Alaska's Inside Passage, across the Alaska Peninsula, to Unimak, the largest and easternmost of the Aleutian Islands.

Binde, who was joined by his friend Quoc Nguyen along the way, logged roughly 2,500 miles.

In late June, Thomas Drennan McLenigan, education outreach manager at the Museum of the Aleutians, began publishing a series of Instagram posts about historically and locally significant places on the island.

JoJo is an Unalaskan who loves hiking, loves fish, and enjoys catching up with his neighbors. In other words, he's a lot like most people on the island. The striking thing about JoJo, though, is that he's a cat.
