227 Kms from Tanana
To this day when I tell people about the route the plane took over the north pole it surprises them. Even experienced travels. I’m not sure why, but here is proof that we flew close to the arctic circle and came down through Russia and Mongolia to end in China.
Denali National Park and Preserve
218 Kms from Tanana
The ultimate in national park in the US system. Only 30% of the summer is Mt. McKinley visible, but if you get the chance to see this massive mountain rise above the park, there aren't many views more dramatic. Throw in some bears, wolves, moose, caribou and other beautiful animals to give the ultimate wilderness experience. Trailblazing is a must, but be careful as you may come face to face with some of the local residents.
