    Valdez at 11:30 at night. The sun stays out the longest in June, when we were there, and sets around 1 in the morning, though not entirely.

    A GLACIER NEAR SEWARD, ALASKA. NOTICE THE TINY LITTLE TOUR BOAT IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER. ACTUALLY THAT BOAT WAS QUITE LARGE AND PROBABLY CARRIED 100 PEOPLE. THE GLACIERS ARE VERY LARGE IN THE AREA.

    Denali Highway.

    The highway, connecting Cantwell and Paxson is 135 miles long, of which 20 miles are paved and the rest gravel. Due to the many potholes, the recommended speed is 30 mph.

    Mount Denali - the locals will swear at you if you call it Mt McKinley.
    This is what all the Americans come to see - so make sure to take a photo when the weather allows some visibility.

    Even if you have just a limited amount of time, if you're in Anchorage make the quick drive to Chugach National Forest. Lovely country, lovely lakes.
