Alaska: The Last Frontier
With almost 50% of its total population of 750,000 living in metropolitan Anchorage in a state more than 3 times the area of Texas, Alaska definitely is a wilderness wonderland. Everywhere my wife Beth and I traveled during our 10-day adventure this past September, we were mesmerized by Alaska’s natural beauty — majestic, snow-capped mountains; glacial lakes; dense, wooded forests; green valleys; and an abundance of wildlife.
Touring Denali National Park
Established in 1917, Denali is the first national park created for wildlife and not for its geological attributes. The park is more than 6 million acres, larger than the state of Vermont. There is only one road, which stretches 92 miles from the park entrance. Our tour guide and driver Justin Harkins had an uncanny ability to spot wildlife on the tundra, sighting moose, Dall sheep, snowshoe hares,golden eagles and grizzly bears.
