We loved the Lodge. Everyone at the lodge seemed to love their work, Alaska and the environment. The food was fresh, delicious and wonderfully seasoned. Produce was organically grown on the premises and food was locally sourced. We even had freshly baked bread (many different delicious kinds) at each meal. The common area was comfortable and relaxing. The rooms were small, but that's what we expected. After all, we were only in them to sleep and shower. I was especially pleased with the total concern for the environment, using mostly reusable and if not reusable, biodegradable products.

We woke up to another gray and rainy morning, but this time it was significantly colder at the lodge. Breakfast was a twist on eggs benedict, smoked salmon instead of ham. Plus delicious apricot pastries. Afterwards, we picked our hikes and packed our lunches.
Today, we switched it up. Mike and Chuck chose the strenuous hike, Ellen and …
