Denali complete the picture.

Day 3: Petersville Road - Denali National Park

Continue north on the Parks Highway. Stopover at Byers Lake, rent a kayak and glide through the tranquil waters.

More Gray Whales in Alaska

Recent scientific reports show that more gray whales were spotted this summer off the coast of Alaska than in any other year. The previous record for a full season from July through October was 18 calves, but in July 2012 alone, researchers counted more than 50 calves, according to the Alaska Fisheries Science Center. That's good news for travelers who may have whale watching on their Alaska must-see list.

To the north lies a sampling of the Arctic Alaska foothills.
