My husband and I drove from Everson, WA to Alaska, June 30th, arriving in Palmer, AK July 3rd (2300 miles.) We drove up the Alcan Hwy. and saw numerous wild animals within 20 feet including black and grizzly bears, caribou, stone sheep, male and female moose. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the drive up except the first day we were in a tundra of ever lasting trees. When we finally broke out of it the wait was well worth it.
After spending a few days in Palmer visiting our son and his family, we all headed to Denali National Park. We were in the heart of Alaska where there was beautiful scenery and warm sunny weather...On the way back to Palmer we stopped at the Talkeetna Moose Dropping Festival. The park was filled with crafts, food and music. It was a nice ending to our road trip.
We hope to drive up again, and we would recommend a vacation to Alaska.
