I spent a week visiting Southeast Alaska with my dad in December of 2016. Two of those days were spent along the Alaska Marine Highway in the Inside Passage. This is the audio journal of my experience.
I produced this short fictional story as submission in Third Coast Festival's ShortDoc competition. There are several "legends" about how Crazy Woman Creek in Wyoming got its name. I synthesized elements from many of them to create this story. It's told from the perspective of a mountain man named "Johnson" (voiced by Don Wood). The competition had a couple rules worth mentioning. (1) Submissions couldn't exceed three minutes and (2) had to incorporate one of four original musical composition that Third Coast provided.
