Hi, we are an active family of 7, who will be traveling to Alaska in Aug 2011 to celebrate our oldest son's graduation from college. All "kids" in their 20's, very active and fit, and we are in our mid 50's. We kayak, camp, fish, and are active lovers of the beautiful outdoors. It will be the first time for the kids; we took a cruise/land vacation for our 25th anniversary with friends several years ago. We are planning to fly into Anchorage, and renting transportation and a house, possibly in Homer. We are planning to stay a week. Any activity suggestions would be appreciated. How many hours drive to Denali? Fishing Guides? If we do rent a house, are there any activities that would be free or low cost on our "rest" days? We are just beginning to plan - I envy the poster that has it already down pat! We are from Texas, too.
