My name is Mark, and I'm new to the board. I am a wildlife biologist from Ontario who happened to pick up a month long contract in Hooper Bay doing waterfowl research....after which I plan to spend 7-10 days seeing more of Alaska. I'll be flying in and out of Anchorage. I'm looking to find an area where I can virtually hike and camp exclusively....I'm trying to cut down on costs as much as possible. Does anybody have any input on recommended camping locations, shuttle services....anything that will set me on my way for planning? I realize this is a broad and fairly vague criteria, but really any information on camping and exploring locations/regulations/transportation would be of great help.
