This was the most perfect trip I have ever taken. Karen, who helped me plan it did an outstanding job. I had low expectations of seeing Mt.McKinley as my nephew and wife had been through the area the week before and saw nothing. On our bus ride to Denali Park, Jerry stopped and let us take pictures before the clouds obliterated the mountain. The bus was comfortable and the stops timely. Our cabin at the park entrance was clean and adequate and the staff very pleasant and helpful. I was concerned about the long bus ride into the back country as I had back and knee problems but the seats were fine and I did well. I was most impressed with the knowledge of the drivers. Both drivers in the back country(Jim and Justin, had masters degrees in biology, geology etc. Again they stopped frequently if we saw animals including a grizzle bear that came down to our side of the bus to dig for tubors. The lodge had very helpful and pleasant staff, our cabins very clean, and the food was very good. I had a dietary restriction which they handled with ease and we were all impressed with the cup warmer. I would highly recommend the Denali Backcountry tour to all who want to see Alaska's beauty.
