Two of my favoriate trips to take on a day flight out of Birchwood around South Central AK are;
1.) I take them "around the block" ... Birchwood ... Kinik river valley ... Kinik glacier ... Lake George ... sprial up over Colony Glacier ... decent into College fijords ... out to Wells Passage, then Passage cannel ... Portage Pass ... right turn over Girdwood, up over Crow pass and down Eagle River valley and back to Birchwood.
2.) I also take them on the "National Geographic Special" ... Out of Birchwood to the north west gradual climb up to 15k (if there are no smokers are onboard) ... Up the Ruth, through "One Shot Pass" over to the face of Foraker, turn arround get back over th the Ruth ... decend in a sprial to about 500 ft over the upper Ruth Glacier and then down the Great Hall and out to Talkeetina ... stop at the Road house and let them have a beer and what ever, then back down the Big Su ... low level, about tree line until about the Yetna, back up and back to Birchwood.
Anyone else have a "standard visitor trip" that makes them ... OHooooo & Awhhhhhh
