Planning another trip to AK in late June/early July 2008! We have already booked the Port Lions Lodge on Kodiak where we will engage in a fish-a-rama for a week. I'll definitely post after the trip since there is so little recent info on Kodiak in the forums.
After Kodiak, we will be heading to the Glennallen area near Wrangell-St. Elias. We will spend about 5 days or so exploring and fishing in some pretty remote areas from the looks of the maps and what I've seen in the Forum. Everyone seems to either cruise or head towards Denali on the George Parks Highway. We've been there/done that so we're headed in the opposite direction. We did do part of the Glennallen Highway just past Sheep Mountain Lodge where we got our infamous flat tire. So, no off-roading for us!
Does anyone have any experience with the Lake Louise Lodge or that area? We are debating on whether to split our time between Lake Louise and either a bit north or south of Glennallen proper along the Richardson Highway. This would put us either in the Gakona area to the north or the Copper Center area to the south. Anyone know what would be a better choice? Any suggestions on where to stay in these areas? We like to stay in cabins if possible (private bath a must!) and near a lake or river.
