I went there in 93 with my brother we drove up took a week. Left June 12 got to Fairbanks the 19th. Camped out We drove up the Dalton Hiway Went to Deadhorse on June 21 and camped out north of the Artice circle from the 20 to the 22 The drove back down to Fairbanks and the Denali. Went rafting outside of the park. Camped out at Polychrome for 4 days. Went down to Anchorage and then HOmer to do Halibet fishing. We were in Valdez for the 41h. No firewoks up there but is was dark enough for it. Then we drove to San Fran and REno back to Portland over to North Dakota and Minnesota. Got back home on July 19th Over 15000 miles driven in 5 weeks.

I suppose you were there and know what I saw ass hole, we were in denali national park, the weather was clear and we saw Mt, McKinley, the tallest mountain in north america. we have a whole bunch of pictures of it.
no cruise, we visited my wife's brother at Homer.

My wife and I are flying up to Anchorage on the 6th of July. We spend 3 niignts in Denali and then we are taking a cruise south. Its been quite a while since I have had a vacation and I am really looking forward to it.
My preference is not to cruise but to fly somewhere and spend all my time. But my wife really wants to take a cruise.

I'm booking tickets this week so I can go back for my 20 year reunion, in North Pole, AK. (about 15 miles outside Fairbanks)

Prob just spend a week up there, but should be fun.

Can't wait to experience the Summer Solstice again.

I'll bet it really was depressing going back home to SW Kansas after a trip like that.

I remember being depressed going back to Ulysses after my vacations - even if my vacation was just to eastern Kansas.
