We will be doing a loop from Anchorage to Denali to Fairbanks, then back down the Richardson and across the Glenallen back to Anchorage. Does it make a difference if we do this loop clockwise or counterclockwise? For example, I know that on the Seward highway, people say that the pull-outs are best used going south. I'm wondering if there are certain views, scenery, pull-outs, etc., that make it better to do this loop in one direction or the other. This will be in August if it makes a difference.
Also, I have mixed feelings about detouring down to Valdez. It seems like there's not much to do there, but people say the drive itself is stunning. Is it worth the detour, or even if we don't go all the way to Valdez, is there a certain distance south of Glenallen that would be worth continuing on to see before turning around?Edited: 06 June 2014, 17:39
