Last summer I hiked the Chilkoot Pass with a group of friends. At the blustering snow covered top of the gruelling Golden Stairs we were greeted by the smiling face of artist Corrie Francis Parks. She invited us to write a postcard addressed to ourselves, that would be posted one year later. She also spent the following winter animating some of the stories. The first one was posted online last week.

Check out the very precious one-minute video, Sourdough Zombies:

The project was part of the annual Chilkoot Trail Artist in Residence Program. Read more about the project on Corrie's blog.
