Even though it is the size of Switzerland, not many folks make it to the Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska. You have to either fly in or hike to the park from the Dalton Highway (haul road).

It's on my bucket list of places to visit. It is one of the last truly remote and wild places on earth. No visitor center, no trails.

We've done the internal Alaska trip (Anchorage, Oscar, Valdez, Fairbanks, Danali and Fairbanks -- and places in between). The Juneau trip is fairly easy (most often by Cruise), but my friends tell me that the interior trip with required flights because of the lack of roads is REALLY spectacular. I agree, bucket list quality.

Somewhat like our topic while walking the dog this morning -- our trip to Hawaii and Molacki. Most Hawaiians have never visited it.
