We traveled three weeks through Alaska - from Fairbanks in the north to Katmai NP in the south. At the end, we both said that the highlight of our trip were our 3 nights at the Caribou Lodge.
It started with the short flight to the lodge by floatplane from Talkeetna (Fisch Lake). Once arrived and greeted by Pam and Mike, with there warm welcome - we felt right home.
The guided hikes with Mike into the surrounding area were each times a little adventure for us searching for wildlife in a stunning wilderness surrounding including Mt. Denali in the backdrop on our daily hikes from 4-6 hours. Just to be toped each day with an excellent cooked breakfast and dinner by Pam (The BBQ was in Mike’s hands) with endless supply of fresh baked bread, cakes and cookies it gave us our “Alaska” experience.
Also thanks again Mike for all the stories you told us and the countless questions you answered about the wildlife, flora and fauna, hunting and over your “life and survival” at the “Caribou Lodge”.
