Leif and Lacy
The Fifth Season would not exist without these two. Leif started The Fifth Season in 1977 as an ambitious young adventurer. With his wife by his side, both have poured out a lot of love and creativity into The Fifth Season to make it what it is today. Because of Leif and Lacy, The Fifth Season is so much more than just a store. For some it is an outfitter, for others an educational resource, and many others it is place they come to see friends, to feel loved, and to laugh.
