1000 Americans: The Himmelrights, Vanderhoof

Filed under 1000 Americans


Shannon & Travis Himmelright are travellers themselves and took us in for the night. Shannon’s sister Kyle was visiting, but also their parents were there (only mother Wendy is in the picture, father Les had already left the house). Unfortunately not just to visit, but as a necessity, as their house had just burned down.

In , many places are outside a fire protection district and the old house, in which the entire family had grown up, burned down to the ground after the old trusty woodstove suddenly was not so trusty anymore…

(Ivana is getting mesmerized by the newest member of the optimistic and wonderful Himmelrights family!)
