Working in Port Alsworth

I (Abigail) just got back from working in Port Alsworth at the Farm Lodge.  I made beds, washed dishes, set tables fancy and all that fun stuff. =)  The Farm Lodge and Lake Clark Air that my dad flies for are run by the same family.  It was nice, if I needed something dad was always stopping in since he flies out of there.  It took the pressure off packing. =)  I got to come home every Friday night then go back to work on Saturday. 
Inside the Lodge.
Right outside my room.
It was a ton of fun.  Not only were there awesome people to work and hang out with...
 And beautiful scenery...
The Beaver Pond

 You get to do a ton of fun stuff working there.

 And go bear viewing just to name a few.

OK, so that's a ptarmigan not a bear.

Sorry for the photo overload.  It's hard to pick just a few pictures. =)

Nice pictures! Enjoyed looking through them. I'm sold; I think I want to visit Alaska.

We just got back from a trip to see fall colors. I can see why people like to live in Alaska. The scenery doesn't compare to anywhere else.
