I drove from Fairbanks to Talkeetna, roughtly 275 miles. This was absolutely the most breathtaking and beautiful drive I have ever taken in my life. Being someone who has driven across the lower 48 (West & East, North & South), this beats all of those...More

I drove from Anchorage to Denali and back. From Wasila north is really beautiful. Mountains on all sides. Big one. I had a very clear view. I also saw a huge moose in a pond around Talkeetna. You pass through various types of forests and...More
