The coffee shop
Our breakfast in the sun
The lodge is owned by an avid outdoorsman who has his own sled dog team;
we were invited to come meet the dogs after breakfast- very cool!

We had a great time learning about the origins of sled dogs,
getting to know our host, and meeting the team
The dogs enjoyed it too ;)
It was time to head home after meeting the dogs, so we bid our host
farewell, packed the car, topped off the gas tank, and hit the road
We stopped to pick blueberries off the Denali Highway on our way-
can you see Vince in the berry patch?!
Not all the berries were quite ripe yet,
but we found a few patches of good ones...
...just enough to take home and enjoy before heading back to work

We wrapped up our berry search just as the rain started
Home sweet home
