Spent a nice afternoon hiking in the park and enjoying the lovely greenery. I never thought Alaska could be so lush!

The drive on Seward Highway from Anchorage to Seward is beautiful with numerous pullouts for photos and sightseeing. You may see some Beluga Whales (they aren't the ones that breach) and Dall sheep.

We visited Thunderbird Falls on our way north to Denali NP. Off the Old Glenn Hwy, cost is $5 for the park. The trail is fairly flat hit does have some hills. It is pretty wet so good footwear is best to prevent slipping.

I didn't get to explore as much of this park as I would have liked to, but what I saw was beautiful. I just went to the top and took in the lovely view. I did see the beginning of a trail that looked beautiful....More

We spent 10 days touring the Kenai Peninsula in a motorhome. This park is massive. The views have to be seen to be believed. We stayed in the park a few times as we made our way around the area. Enjoyed every minute!

Hiked the Russia River falls hike. The hike is moderately challenging. the Russian Falls at the end of the hike is worth the hike. I highly recommend this trip

Running around Prince William Sound & super close to Anchorage, this is a worthwhile visit. Majestic mountains ~ Mega Fauna like Moose & Bear. Take time to make this a destination
