We were in Alaska for three weeks. Anchorage and Fairbanks were disappointing, Denali national part was good but crowded with tourists and tour buses. I came to Alaska to find peace and quietness... Until we arrived at Caribou Lodge. It is not only the quietness and nature which made this place so amazing, it is also the stories Mike tells and the food Pam cooks.
The walks in surrounding areas were million times better than Denali, the view is equally stunning, but minus all the tourists and tour buses.
I understand now why many people keeps going back to Caribou Lodge, because I will definitely be one of them :)
