I just posted this on the photography forum since I really love photography and it will be the focus of my trip. Alaska vacation, who can help me? OK, the wife gave me a green light to plan a trip to Alaska next July. I want to do most of the travel with a rental car or RV so I can do what I want and when I want. There are 2 things I really want to do, fly to Katmai for some bear viewing and a wildlife/birding cruise in the Kenai Fjords. Oh, Denali too of course. For those who have been there or done research on it do you have ANY reccomendations on what to do, where to stay, or ANYTHING else. I have wanted to do this for years and can't wait. Any help you may be able to offer will be greatly appreciated!!!
