You mean Skinny Dicks of course. Not the same as when Dick owned it. Last time I stopped it was run by a couple women.

A number of years ago we took an Alaska cruise.  One of the most interesting side-trips was the narrow-gauge train ride from Skagway into the Yukon.  It is a huge touristy thing, but it is worthwhile in my opinion.  The scenery is incredible, but even more incredible is learning about the difficulties and hardships that the people were willing to endure in their search for gold in the Klondike.

So huge... I'd stop a lot to fish! If I went back in late summer, I'd fly fish for trout and grayling. Then when I got to the beach I'd find out what's hot right then and do that.

Definitely get some glacier ice to add to your drinks. I still remember Mt Dew with crystal clear glacier ice.....

I'd prefer late June, and fishing Kings in the rivers, but late summer will ensure more bugs... I mean temperate cilmes…. (and bugs!)

You'll see plenty just living and moving around! Fish!

If you put your name in the permit system to get drawn you can drive into Denali for a 24 hr period instead of having to go in on the bus. But I believe that's in the Sept time frame
