It sounds like many folks are still attempting to make their trips - even with the cost of gas going through the roof. That is a good thing. I wonder though, if the cost of gas has changed what we drive when we get to our destinations? i.e. do we rent a compact vs an SUV when possible? Or, a small SUV vs something larger?
PS David, sounds like you are going to have some great opportunities in Denali and Kenai Fjords NP. I hope you will share some photos when you get back!
