      Alaska Aug 8, 2015 at 10:37 AM

      Hi

      We are planning a trip to Alaska between Sep 3 and 15 this year. We are only interested in "seeing" what nature offers and not doing much of anything else, because of certain constraints.

      Our plan is to Rent a car and spend 2 days in Anchorage. Next head north to Denali Park and thence to Fairbanks. Spend a day there and drive down Richardson Hwy and soak in all the splendor. Am not sure if Tok is worth visiting, yet. Go down to McCarthy, if it is worth going to McCarthy else go to Valdez instead & spend a night there. We will then go up and and turn west from GlennAllen. Check out Palmer - go to Portage/Whittier and do the Glacier tour there. Head to Seward, Cooper Landing, Kenai etc. Check each place towards Homer & see every heavenly spot along the way. Go back to Anchorage and fly back.

      Are we biting more than we can chew, as I know it is a lot of driving and plenty of retracing steps. But there is no other alternative, as riding a ferry from Valdez would deprive us of the Glenn Hwy pleasure. Please let me know if there is a better way to see the places on our list. We thank you in advance for any suggestions.

      Regards
      Krishna

      My husband and I will be driving a rental car in June from Valdez to Talkeetna and I'm wondering about the road conditions through Hatcher Pass - I don't think we're supposed to drive on gravel roads. If it's really rough conditions, is it still worth the time to drive up to Hatcher Pass from Palmer, then turn around and retrace our steps to drive to Talkeetna via Wasilla? Thanks -
