Alaska is a beautiful state. It seemed no matter where we drove there were gorgeous views of mountains, forest, or waterways, and often wild anaimals. On our way from Anchorage to Homer we stopped at Gwin's Lodge for lunch. I love good sea food and Alaska seemed to have a bounty of delicious options. Out of the whole week this Salmon soup remains one of my favorites. The Lodge was set in small Coopers Landing, it was simple and like so much of Alaska it was warm, welcoming, and full of friendly people.
