Northwest Travel & Life Magazine: Back Country Lodging

6 08 2018

The cover story for the latest issue of Northwest Travel & Life Magazine is a piece I wrote about lodges with no roads. From the article:

In addition to unparalleled scenery, some of these lodges provide chef-driven farm to table cuisine on par with any top-tier urban restaurant, or thoughtfully detailed luxury accommodations you’d expect to find in downtown in a major city. Others specialize in being comfortably rustic, serving as the perfect home base for instant access to the remote and wild attributes of their immediate surroundings. Getting to these places requires alternative modes of transportation –  either hiking, kayaking, riding on horseback, a jet boat, raft, chartered flight, or some combination thereof. But however you access them, they are always exponentially worth the time and effort. Here are some of our favorites.”
