“Think you've seen mountains?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

2nd largest national forest in the nation, so don't expect to see it all. but what we saw was mag-by-god-nificent! Homer was our favorite city, followed by Seward and Anchorage. Best drive was up to Hatcher Pass out of Palmer. More fishing than you can shake a rod at, if you're so inclined.

Wow. Amazing. Hike to the Hand Tram - Yikes!! Such beauty. Hiked through the deep forest, pulled the hand tram across a raging river far below. Wow. Alaska.

The mountains are so beautiful. What a gorgeous place. Drive up to Flathead Trailhead for a nice view out over Anchorage.
