Hello! I have been lurking on this forum and have asked some questions too. I have some of my trip in mind. I was wondering if I could throw it out there for suggestions.
My husband and I enjoy the outdoors and beautiful views...hiking, fishing...
We arrive in ANC at 3:15pm on Friday, May 23, 2008. I was thinking of grabbing the rental car and heading to the Bird Ridge or Summit Lake Lodge (both recommended on this forum). Getting a room for the nite then go up the tram in Gridwood, maybe Portage Glacier on our way to Seward. (or should we go to Homer first?).
May 26 - 27 - 28- Homer - definately 1/5 day halibut fishing charter (Rainbow Tours, as suggested on this forum) Any further suggestions on activities?
May 29, 30, 31, 1 - Denali (Is this too much time up there, this time of year?) I added the 1st to go into the park on a shuttle as the park is open this day to go further into the park (as advised here). Hope the weather is good that day!
I have not planned out time here yet except for the 1st. Again, is this too much time here? Should we venture further north? Or stay longer on the Kenai Peninsula? I also want to stop in Hope, Alaska, as I have a house in Hope, ME, I thought it would be nice yet cheezy to get a Hope, AK sweatshirt or something..if they have them.
I plan to stop here and there alot during our drivies to Seward/Homer/Denali. So, we don't have to stay IN those places on tthe above listed nites. We could stay anywhere while travelling...
I know reading this is probably like trying to catch a ping pong ball in a hurricane, sorry!
If you can decipher any of this, any suggestions would be awsome!
On the 2nd we must get up early to catch a 4pm flight.
