The lodge at Hatcher Pass. Spent an awesome two days here with friends right before I left Alaska last month. We drove up from Homer, a nearly 5 hour drive, because the forecast called for active Aurora Borealis that night. We didn’t get an Aurora show, but we did stay in a beautiful A-frame cabin with an incredible view. The snow wasn’t much, so there weren’t any skiers up there, which meant we had the entire place to ourselves. My friend and I got up early the next day and chatted for a while with the lodge owner, a man in his 80s who claimed the land back in the homesteading days and built the whole lodge himself.
