About Arlene Cowles
Your hosts are long-time Alaskans, Roger & Arlene Cowles. These two are some of the most adventurous people you'll probably ever meet in your lifetime. They met in a most unusual place... Utqiagvik, AK formally known as Barrow. Roger Cowles, rode a bicycle he custom built, 1,160 miles from Anchorage to Nome, on the Iditarod Trail. This was the first time that any modern day cyclist had ever rode this winter trail of snow and ice. http://www.frontiersman.com/valley_life/evolution-of-fat-tire-bikes-traces-roots-to-redington/article_70b90e50-9138-11e3-ac20-001a4bcf887a.html http://www.alaskaultrasport.com/iditarod_trail_invitational/race%20history.html Arlene Cowles, spent 7 summers kayak touring around the coastal waters of the Beaufort Sea, the Chukchi Sea, and below the Bering Strait, the Bering Sea. Plus, a bit in the Gulf of Alaska. In 1989 her and previous husband, Martin Leonard III, kayaked from Nome to Wales and then cross the Bering Strait to the village of Uelen, then continued southwest along the Siberian coastline ending in Provideniya. They left their kayaks in good hands at the dock and then flew with Bering Air to Provideniya's sister city, Nome, AK.
Why Arlene Cowles chose Indian
The lodge and wedding venue is in a natural setting with expansive views overlooking the waters of Turnagain Arm and backdropped by the mountains of Chugach State Park.
What makes this Chalet unique
We gift our guests with a free tour around the historic, Indian Valley Gold Mine. There we demonstrate how to pan gold and teach panning techniques to ensure gold recovery. Pick up your complementary bucket of pay dirt from the gift shop and yes, you get to keep all the gold you find! We also offer a 10% discounted rate for glacier cruises in Whittier and Seward. If you like to hike, there is a path behind the lodge that connects to the Chugach State Park Turnagain Arm Tails, which will traverse the lower part of Indian Mountain all the way to Windy Point. With less than a mile hike from the lodge you can gaze over the bluff at Hope, Alaska and the tidal water flats of Turnagain Arm. Call if you have any questions or need help with trip planning.
