Kathy & Mark with Namgay, our guide in Bhutan

   Canyon Designs began building rustic picture frames at our remote homesite off the Alaska Railroad.  Soon after we came up with the idea for Alaska Mats.  Their quality, reasonable price and easy handling made them an instant success with tourists.  We were soon getting requests for mats from vacation destinations all over the world as well as custom mats for special occasions and VacationMats was born.

   Unfortunately we're not making many frames anymore and very unfortunately we're not spending as much time at the homesite as we once did, but we are enjoying exploring vacation destinations ourselves and creating mats for your memories and ours!
