As a college student back in Michigan I needed to get away for a summer so I decided to come to Alaska and work for Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. It turned out to be one of the greatest experiences of my life! I work at the front desk and have met some very interesting guests throughout the year. The most memorable would have to be the one that did not know how to work the elevator!
I have met people from all over the world and now have friends from every part of the country. The best part of my Alaskan experience so far is all the places I have seen. I go into Denali National Park on tours whenever I get a chance. Mt. McKinley is amazing to see – especially from the air! Traveling to other lodges has also been a highlight.
I went to Copper River Princess Lodge with some friends and had a great time. We went to Valdez for a Prince William Sound Cruise and got to see whales, porpoises, sea otters, and among other things. Alaska is one of the most beautiful places in the world and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life!
