Greetings! We are finally ready to plan our trip to Alaska. The timing totally depends on the best time for shooting bears during the salmon run. We can probably schedule two weeks. We'd like to see as many National Parks while there as possible, Please provide any advise about lodging and road trips. We're not big fans of tours, but realize some may be necessary, like for Denali, We hope to go next year, if things settle down and if it's not too late to make reservations. What are the recommended lodges near the run? It'll be two of us and hiking is not part of our plans. Thanks in advance for any and all tips!!
