We live in New Zealand and have been visiting my aging mother for the past two years. We are visiting my mother ( 2014 june or July)again in Grande Prairie but only want to venture away up to 5 days ( our whole trip willl only be 12 days as that is all we can afford off work) . We have already explored Jasper, Banff etc... Last year we visited Wells Grays National Park. now want to start working our way towards Yukon and Alaska. Do we #1 take bite size trips ( as we will mostly likely visit annually) and work our way upwards ( if so where) ( We would rather enjoy a place rather spend the whole time driving around in a hurry ) . or #2 take a flight straight to desination Yukon and travel from there( but that will add to cost ) ? Or any other ideas? We can have the use of mothers car and money is an issue . WE are a couple in our 50's and like day walks, wildlife and scenic sight seeing.
Any idea's would be greatfull recieved
