I don't know how much it would cost, but you guys seriously need to find a way into the sky and experience Alaska from the air.
I agree whole-heartedly. I have lots of hours as a C130 Flight Engineer in the Coast Guard. There's nothing more cool than flying up to and around Mt. McKinley and its many glaciers. Maybe landing on a glacier would be cooler but not in a Herc.

I've seen Polar Bears swimming off the coastline of Russia, Polar Bears running on the coastline of Barrow, volcanoes erupting at night, walrus being slaughtered in the Pribilof's, and Killer Whale pods raping fishermans longline gear.. I even watched an eagle smash into my airplane and hit a deer on a touch-and-go at 140kts. Those weren't cool, though.

It's a whole different view from above.
