Photos from the WinterLake Lodge, Alaska

I'm just home from the trip of a lifetime, 3 days spent in the middle of the Alaska wilderness at Carl and Kirsten Dixon's WinterLake Lodge, which is only accessible by skiplane in the winter, and seaplane or helicopter in the summer. They are wonderful hosts, offering great hospitality. I'll have both audio and video shows in the coming weeks from the trip, both in the kitchen and outdoors snowmachining and dog sledding.

The highest peak in North America, Danali (It's huge even from a couple hundred miles away).

Mady, that's great! What a pleasure it was to discover this gem! I'll have my video programs with Kirsten and the dog sledding on the Culinary Media Network soon.
