This has little or nothing to do with the outdoors, but maybe you've noticed, people are constantly making up new words and expressions. Trouble is, some of my favorites are being forgotten and abused.

I want more lilies. A lot more. And I mean true lilies (Lilium spp.) rather than daylilies (Hemerocallis spp.). Casa Blanca is the variety that has put me in such a state.

I spent a morning recently with some other fishermen at the Captain Cook State Recreation Area waiting for the tide to bring some fresh coho (silver) salmon into the Swanson River.

We Alaskans occasionally need to be reminded of how fortunate we are to live where salmon still have a place to come home to. In Washington, where I was born and raised, salmon abundance has declined dramatically over the past several decades.

We had a scare the other day. Staff at the Kenai Municipal Airport suspected elodea, a nasty invasive freshwater plant, was in their floatplane basin, so we scrambled to see what was there.
