Prior to August 25th guest are called for breakfast at 7:00 am for an 8:00 departure and after the 24th at 6:30 for a 7:30 departure. This is only important because the sunrises are normally earlier than your wake-up call. For most guests this is not an issue as they are often up and enjoying the scenery from the front deck before we start marking coffee around 6:15. The day trips return to the lodge sometime between 3 and 5 p.m. so it is important that we have a good picnic lunch and our cook does a good lunch. In all my years (10) at the lodge we have yet to eat all the lunch and often it seems we hardy eat half.
