    When in Juneau hike out to the Eagle Glacier.
    Great cabin described above and beautiful scenery all to your lonesome. This is the view from the front of the cabin's porch.

    While on Kupreanof Island, do the Petersburg Mountain trail.
    Fantastic views of the Coastal mountians, Wrangell Narrows, and some glaciers thrown in for good measure.

    When in Ketchikan, go to the Totem Bight.
    Beautiful coastal setting makes the totems even more impressive.

    Former red light district turned into tourist trap that is still charming when not too crowded (ie. when cruise ship is not in!).

    Halibut fishing anywhere in Alaska.
    If you think the only thing that gets hooked is the halibut ... think again ... most people become hooked on the sport and the fish tastes delicious!

    This is at Hallo Bay locatd SW of Anchorage. You can't get there in your car, folks-look in your atlas. There were probably 8-10 bears hanging out here in this field.

    Spend the time and money to fly out to a remote fishing lodge or on a fly-in fishing/bear viewing trip
    This is the best way to see the true Alaska.

    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.
