Photo: Log now, canoe later

Sitka National Historical Park maintenance worker Jared Hazel nails down wooden blocks to keep a red cedar log from rolling Wednesday afternoon behind the Visitor Center. The log will remain at its present site as it is turned into a 28-foot-long Tlingit canoe over the next few months by carver Steve Brown. The plan, which was organized by former Park Superintendent Mary Miller, is to have the canoe ready in time to paddle it to Glacier Bay for the opening of the Huna House. The Huna House is a 2,500-square-foot cedar tribal house being built in Bartlett Cove by the National Park Service and Hoonah Indian Association. The building is expected to be complete by this summer.
