This video is a short collection of highlights and photos from Joseph Classen’s 2012 solo adventure to Twin Lakes, Alaska. He has been captivated by this place since his youth…inspired by the legendary “Alone in the Wilderness” story of Dick Proenneke, who built an incredible cabin and documented his life at Twin Lakes for 30 years. This video was shot spontaneously on a rather low quality camera and is simply intended for your enjoyment. Learn and see more and purchase limited edition Twin Lakes prints at
