wondering if any of you have any suggestions or "Must See's"...

They have tours of glaciers by floatplane. Some people aren't comfortable with the idea of flying in single engine planes (especially when they can only land safely on water), but I've been on bush planes in Canada several times, no sweat.

There are cruise ship tours along the coast that make several stops to do inland tours by bus, train or floatplane. Maybe you could drive to some of these places while you're there. I've heard that flying over the Brooks Range is unbelievable. Also, the brown bears there are like grizzlies on steroids. Kodiak Island has some incredible brutes (they eat lots of salmon). I've also heard that salmon cannery tours are interesting (but kinda smelly).
