I cannot wait for this summer's festivities. I think I have the ever patient husband talked in to a trip to Denali before they close the road. Denali National Park has only one road, and that road is only open to tour buses from Memorial Day to Labor Day (I'm fuzzy on the dates) but the first 30 miles are open and free right now. Nighttime is still prohibitively cold, but I think I can manage with enough sleeping bags, hats, mittens, and layers.
Later this summer we'll take the Kenai peninsula by storm. Whale watching, tourist trap enjoying, tent camping, even a wildlife cruise.
Our first summer of fun as a family of four. Momentous.
