I am going to Alaska this August.   Starting out in Vancouver and getting on the Star Princess and going up the inland passage.  I will be stopping at Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay and College Fjord Glacier to Whittier.   I am taking the White Pass norrow gage train up to the pass while in Juneau.   Also taking a hello up to a glacier and going mushing with a dog team for an afternoon.   The from Whittier, jumping on another train to Talkeetna for a day.  Then on to Denali National park for a few days.  From there on to Fairbanks and taking a Riverboat paddle wheeler up the river and back to Fairbanks and then home    I t should be an exciting venture

Thats great. Will be a good time. Would be fun to do the glacier landing in the Beaver. :) That train to Talkeetna is a nice run.

Enjoy that!

When I see a Rabbit run into a bush and come out the other side I think to myself "That lucky bastard!"

Looking forward to this trip....I was going to go on a beaver float plane to a lake to watch bears, but my wife and I both agreed that the dog sledding sounded more adventurous considering we are from South Florida . We will have plenty of opportunities to see bears in other places on the trip.   lol

Sounds like a dream trip! One of my friends moved up to Anchorage and finished High School a couple years ago. He now works for Regal Air. Some day I'll make it up there too. Be sure to come back here and post some pictures!

Sounds like your going to get to experience a lot of different things. Nicely planned. You wrote 'a few days;' Are you camping in the national park?

First time in 10 years we had such trouble here. I am getting emails that are obvious scams. Anyone else?
