) Going up sometime in the summer is something you should do to see Denali and the entire state in the summertime.
i was actually doing a good amount of research last semester and the plane tickets a year in advance were still hovering around 700 each. then i thought it would be an awesome idea to road trip up there in some kind of hybrid suv with some buddies, but still the 30 or so hours of driving and the fuel costs would just be too much (mainly the 30+ hours, my friends were all pussies and said 'fuck that'). i guess ill have to save up for a trip in the future, but i definitely want to make it up there in the next couple years. mainly to be the guy in that picture on the first page, i guess ill snowboard if i have to haha
