Grandpere Jacques

I received this postcard of my late grandfather Jacques today from a dear family friend, and it's now dawning on me why I love the outdoors so much - even TV shows showing subsistence living like Mountain Men and Alaska, the Last Frontier: it is the life he led, which my mother told me about as a child.  

I wish taking photographs was as customary then as it is now.  We have only a handful of these images left to pour over.
