Todd Palin's rural village
Emmonak and Nunam Iqua
Dillingham University campus and Beaver Creek B&B
Aerial view and Bristol Inn, Dillingham
"Welcome to The Bristol Inn. We are located in downtown Dillingham, in the heart of Bristol Bay, Alaska, home of the world's largest salmon run. Our fine hotel is two blocks from the Samuel K. Fox Museum with easy access to banking, restaurants, grocery stores, gift shops and more. Our beautifully appointed rooms, friendly service and warm atmosphere will make your stay a pleasure you'll want to repeat many times."
"Dillingham, Alaska, is home to Beaver Creek Bed and Breakfast. Enjoy a restful nights sleep, charming Alaskan home-style ambience, and friendly hospitality that only Alaskans can offer. Beaver Creek B&B is open year round and is a favourite place to stay for Business Travellers visiting Dillingham."
That's the Dillingham where Todd was born and grew up, according to his wife, Sarah Palin - if we discount Glennallen and Wasilla, of course...
Compare the photos of Dillingham to the top two pictures, of Emmonak and Nunam Iqua, which were at the heart of the energy crisis this winter. Emmonak has a grocery store, Nunam Iqua doesn't. I very much doubt they have a Bristol Inn or easy access to banking, restaurants and more.
But hey, Todd grew up in REAL rural Alaska, he's a TRUE native who seized his opportunities!
