I discovered a delightful way to explore Alaska. On www.craigslist.org was a listing for two cabins for rent. I rented one this summer and was delighted. It was called "The Snow Goose" and at the edge of a wee little lake. Cute and cozy, wood stove, and outhouse completed it's charm.
The other cabin, a rustic two story elfin cabin of logs
:The Birdhouse" was also rented by friends so I got to see it also. It is really funny cabin, tiny and crooked and delightful, with indoor plumbing.
The two cabins are separated by a tiny creek (with salmon!) and you walk over a little bridge to the one cabin and the lake.
Both cabins share a canoe.
