Theneutronchef stayed here on Mar 21, 2014 during their trip titled: Adventures with theneutronchef!.
... for salmon off the creeks and actually catching some. Three were caught yesterday by Fred and John. The rest of us got skunked. We go back out today to try our luck again. Been eating some mighty fine dinners though!!
... me for the help and asked to see some of my pictures. I ended up emailing him a couple. I'm pretty sure they are now circulating somewhere around San Fransisco with my name cut off and a James Wang in it's place! But that's ok. It made him happy. He told me to keep in touch. So I guess if I want a Japanese pen pal, he's my man!
Enjoy the pictures. I sure enjoyed taking them. Makes ya as giddy as a schoolgirl!
... clear sky.
On the way back we saw our first moose. Thankfully it was running parallel to the road. Once I hit the brakes, it was apparent how slippery it really was. But the moose stayed put and we cruised along and made it back to he lodge to settle our suitcases to prepare for the next 13 days. I have only the selfie we took in the airport to post. But we're sure we're going to get those aurora shots! Now don't be pessemistic. Those skies will clear. ...
... of course - I wanted you all to be here with us. Dogs and people in a happy environment, you could tell how much the dogs at the homestead loved their home and what they were doing.
I forgot to mention that Denali National Park is the only park that is monitored by teams of mushers in the winter. They run around the perimeter of the park to keep watch on things as there are no fences around the park.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAlpine Lodge Fairbanks
We stayed here for just one night for its proximity to the Discovery River boat. The property is relatively new and well kept. The rooms are large and the beds comfy, but it seems like they are trying to cuts corners with amenities, like small towels and the bathroom accessories. Also, the continental breakfast was an extra $5 charge - not a big deal except that the rooms were on the pricey side.
