We took the 6:15am bus to Wonder Lake. Well worth it. The further we went into the park the more animals we saw. The scenery is breathtaking. We saw the summit inside the park. Saw 2 grizzly bears, one with cubs, carribou, wolve, fox. dall sheep, moose. There are plenty of stops to get out and hike or eat lunch and catch another bus going in further or returning to the visitor center. Highly recommend going all the way to Wonder Lake. It's a long day but with all the stops it goes by so fast. We actually saw the summit our first four days in Alaska and that's usually unheard of.
