Two places I’ve always wanted to see are Denali National Park and Kodiak Island. I could tell you that Denali is one of the only parks that private vehicles are only allowed to drive the first 14 miles and the rest (80 or so miles) are only accessible by park bus or private lodge bus. I could tell you that there are virtually no trails in the park and that hikers make their own way. I could tell you that Kodiak bears are the largest bears in the world. I could also tell you that Kodiak has the densest bear population per square mile of any place on earth.
Or, I could just let you look at the photographs, because sometimes not only is a picture worth 1,000 words in the case of these two places I’m willing to go out on a limb and say they’re worth 10,000 words!
