Making Reservations

Plans for Alaska

I think that I’m more excited about anyone else over our upcoming Alaska trip, but then the grandkids don’t know about all of the plans yet.

As I’ve written before, we have been to Alaska 2 times with our kids so now we have it down on the best route and places to visit. We like to start in Anchorage, go down to the Kenai and then up to Denali.

In the Kenai we like to take a wildlife cruise with a National Park Ranger along. The rangers give talks along the way.

Then we like to camp inside of Denali National Park at Teklanika campground about 30 miles inside the park. Once inside it is fun to take the National Park shuttle bus back into the backcountry. The drivers keep contact with each other stopping to see whatever wildlife happens upon the road. We have had wolves walk right by the bus, seen golden eagles land nearby and lots of bears.

We were lucky this time, I just called for reservations for the wildlife cruise and Denali and was able to reserve everything we wanted.
