My wife and I helped my sister move from the lower forty eight to Anchorage, Alaska. Departing Salt Lake City and meeting in Yellowstone, we took a scenic drive through Glacier National Park, Banff and Jasper National Parks, Grand Prairie, Muncho Provincial Park, and Whitehorse before finally making it to Anchorage on Day nine. After sticking around for three days, we flew home late on Day Twelve marking the end to a whirlwind journey.
This was a phenomenal journey that took months of planning, particularly in securing camping reservations at the wildly popular Yellowstone and Banff National Parks. We learned a lot and while we are absolutely glad that we helped this move and took part in seeing some of the most popular nature reserves in the world, we had a lot of lessons and mistakes that warranted sharing.
