Destination: Alaska
Best deal found: We booked a flight out of Talkeetna to fly up and see the Alaska range and glaciers. Once we got to the airport they asked us if we minded landing on Ruth Glacier too since our flight didn’t have enough folks on it. They didn’t charge us anything extra. We would have had to pay more if we had booked it with a glacier landing. 🙂
