I'm still planning our 2008 Summer vacation. My wife and I plan on visiting Valdez near the beginning of the trip (after flying in to Anchorage and spending a day driving the Turnagain Arm). Upon leaving Valdez, which route do you recommend to Denali... The Richardson Hwy up to Fairbanks or double-back toward Anchorage and head up the Parks Hwy? I have not seen much on this forum about the area between Glenallen and Fairbanks. Tell me why you prefer the route you recommend.
