Our good friend, Jeff Mahan sent us these photo’s of Skilak Lake. The largest island is Caribou Island, where we lived for nine years. And then the little tiny island is Little Caribou Island and then there is Frying Pan island. The reason Caribou Island is private property, unlike the rest of the lake and surrounding area for miles and miles is because Andy and Jessie Anderson homesteaded Caribou Island back in the early 1900’s! The south shore which is closest to Caribou Island is where Sam did his trapping. The Skilak Loop road that leads to civilization is on the north shore, the farthest from the island.
