I’m Gina Knudson. My grandparents and great-grandparents clearly had an aversion to places with much population so small towns were nothing new for me. I moved to Salmon, Idaho in 2002 and was not surprised by its podunkery. I have been surprised by its paradisery. Sometimes I write about one or the other, and sometimes I write about their intersection.
I’m a hockey mom, probably the best wife on the planet, and the director of Salmon Valley Stewardship, a little nonprofit that makes Salmon an even cooler place to be, if you ask me.
