When we checked in, we were told that the pool/locker room building and the rock pool close at midnight!! Geez, we come to see the northern lights, and they close the joint at peak viewing time!!! "Well" the guy says, "you could jump the fence and go in the rock pool, but you'll have to walk back to your lodge in your wet things". The lady the next morning made the mistake of asking me how everything was, I told her what I thought. It is just stupid. STOOOOPID!!!
I don't recommend using the outhouses, I cannot emphasize this enough, I don't recommend using the outhouses. They look very nice, but everyone of them had poop on the seat, like the last user was afraid to sit and missed the hole. Totally Gross!!!! Real Alaskans go in the woods anyway and wipe our butts with snow. (haha) Use the toilet in the lodge.
Gretchen is a real trooper and posed for this photo, but did not come anywhere close to sitting down, ah, the magic of film.
