Identical twins, Miki and Julie Collins have lived in the Alaska bush for more than 50 years. With their team of dogs, they run a hundred-mile trapline near Denali National Park, trapping mainly martin but also lynx, fox, mink, and occasionally wolves and wolverines. They're among the few people left in this area carrying on this difficult way of life. Now climate change may be bringing them new challenges.
