This blog is a record of my seasonal jobs and adventures. Currently, I am living on the coast of Maine and teaching environmental education. Below are descriptions of some the previous places I have been privileged enough to call home.
Rainy Pass Lodge is a small hunting lodge located 125 miles northwest of Anchorage, on Puntilla Lake. The property has a couple log cabins, a lodge with several rooms and 17 horses. It was my responsibility to feed the horses, report the aviation weather and keep the place humming. Electricity was provided by a diesel generator and heat came from our one and only woodstove. RPL is the oldest hunting lodge in Alaska and is a checkpoint on the Iditarod dog sled race. The only way to get to and from the lodge is via plane, dogsled or snow machine.
Camp Denali is a small, family owned lodge located about a half mile west of Wonder Lake in the heart of Denali National Park. My job is to lead lodge guests on day hikes through out the park, teach them a little about the local geology, culture and flora and fauna and help them experience the wonders of the park. This blog is a snapshot of my adventures and misadventures thought out my first year in Alaska.
