Myself and 2 others are making the trip to Anchorage at the end of June. Our objective is to head out on a back country trek for 6 days. We have 3 goals for the trip; epic scenery, wildlife, and to be off of the beaten path. We will be flying into Anchorage, and renting a car. So I would say that to stay within a day's drive of Anchorage would be a requirement. We really aren't set up financially yet to charter any planes. We all will be in good shape, and well prepared with equipment. I have pretty much ruled out Denali national park because we will be carrying a firearm, however I would still be interested in the preserve lands if anybody knows of an epic trip out there. Let me know what you've got, we want to remember the trip forever. Thanks!!!!
