Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, is the only lodge inside the park. And unless you flew over the lodge near Pedersen Glacier, you wouldn’t know it was there. It’s tucked away from the shore to minimize the lodge’s impact on other park visitors. In fact, Alaska Wildland has a robust environmental impact philosophy -- this is a real “eco-lodge.”

The Valley of 10,000 Smokes in Katmai National Park has several selling points for the outdoors travel without a fat wallet. It's reasonably cheap, especially if you have some airline mileage.

Ronn Murray of Ronn Murray Photography captured incredible footage of northern lights Sept. 4, 2014.  He was giving a tour to a small group of aurora first-timers who, as you can hear in the video, were thrilled at the light show before them. Murray said, “We still get excited about a display of this magnitude despite years of doing this. But the true magic is in showing this to first-timers.”Murray predicts that tonight and tomorrow night will trump that light show and possibly be the best show of the season. If you can't see aurora from your area, you can always tune in to Murray's live aurora webcam.
