Should we skip Denali and focus on Talkeetna?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I along with another couple are doing a land trip to Alaska in July. Our friend's buddy who lives there said to put emphasis on Talkeetna instead of visiting Denali too. He loves that town and suggested we just do a fly over the glaciers and Denali and that would be sufficient for seeing Denali. It was in my plan to" flight see" Mt. McKinley and the glaciers while in Talkeetna. However, I was planning to do the bus tour through Denali National Park. Having never been there, maybe the guy recommending us skip Denali is correct, but I can't see where a fly over Denali would compare to actually doing a tour through it.

I would appreciate advice from those who have been there on the wisdom of focusing on Talkeetna at the expense of Denali..
