Carolyn Kelly

Originally from California, Carolyn Kelly and her husband moved to Alaska and lived in a remote cabin at Andrew Creek in what is now Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. They lived a subsistence lifestyle based upon fishing, hunting, and trapping. They developed a negative attitude towards the National Park Service after establishment of the Preserve, feeling that the management rules and regulations were too restrictive for local residents. This led them to move into the community of Eagle, Alaska, and by 1991 Carolyn was living in Fairbanks. She continued to value the time she spent on the river.
