NPR Sarah Waller interviewing Jennifer Hahn: "Kayaking In The Dark: Alone On The Inside Passage"

     In 1992, Jennifer Hahn pushed her kayak into the frigid waters of Ketchikan, Alaska. She pointed the bow south toward her home in Bellingham and started paddling. Her goal was to kayak the Inside Passage, a treacherous waterway stretching from Alaska to Puget Sound. She wanted to be one of the first women to do it alone. Jennifer tells KUOW's Sarah Waller how she turned to memories of her father when the journey stretched her physical and emotional limitations.
