    Seal Onboard!

    In Glacier Bay, look for the seals who take advantage of the free ride on mini icebergs! The one in this picture looked like he considered us to be the scenary here instead of him.

    Creek Street in Ketchikan

    This was the old red-light district in Ketchikan. It had more than 30 brothels lining the street. Yes, it's now very touristy and "cute".

    Totem Bight near Ketchikan

    Another first for me was seeing the magnificent Native American artist creation - the Totem Pole. At this sight were numerous towering & brightly painted totem poles and a Totem House.

    The Historic Alaska Highway ends in Delta Junction. Visit the Sullivan Roadhouse and see 1940's era road building equipment.

    Keep in mind that this picture of Exit Glacier in no way refelcts its size. Also keep in mind that I'm about 25 punds thinner than in this picture!!

    The Denali Highway is a gravel road between Cantwell and Paxson. It has some of the most scenic areas I found. it also has great Grayling fishing.

    Visiting Denali

    by tropicalbirdartist Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taking the shuttle buses into Denali National park is the least expensive way to see the interior of the Park. To increase your chances of seeing the mountain and wildlife take the 5:30am bus.

    Do some camping in Denali even if you don't do it in the backcountry.
    The campgrounds have a bit of a backcountry feel to them and you get to experience the park at night.

    Check out the Kenai Peninsula.
    A beautiful outdoor paradise and where the fine citizens of Anchorage spend their summer weekends. So, of course, you go during the week when they have to work.

    Drive from Skagway to Anchorage. Mostly detailed in my Canadian page under Alaska highway.
    The Tok cutoff is far worse than the Alaska highway. Watch out for the boulders on the road.

    When in Skagway, check out the Arctic Brotherhood (AB) Hall.
    Museum with goldrush relics and about 20,000 pieces of driftwood nailed to the front of it!

    Skagway was our last port of call on the Inside Passage.
    Frontier town turned into a National Historic Park/tourist goldmine. Still charming and lots in the area to see and do.
