Mountains So Close...Can You Touch Them?

There are few experiences that create the excitement of flying between the majestic mountains of Denali National Park can elicit. Although the pilot assured us that we were miles away from the mountains, it felt like we could reach out and touch them. One of the highlights of a flightseeing tour is the feeling of awe and wonder while being amazed at the sheer majesty of the mountains and the glaciers. Because this was such a breathtaking experience, I try to do it anytime I visit Alaska. Starting off with the visit to the authentic Alaskan town of Talkeetna for the flight, one can elect to land on the immense ice fields of glaciers on the mountainside and witness the way the surrounding mountains were shaped or do the flightseeing tour alone. Regardless, of the choice of flightseeing tours, it is a must for everyone’s bucket list.
