At more than 9.6 million acres, south central Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is the largest park in the United States and twice as big as the state of Delaware. If you want to be truly alone, you can rent the remote Esker Stream Cabin for a bargain $25 dollars a day. The only way to reach this four-bed vacation home is by landing your small airplane on nearby Yakutat beach at low tide and hiking a quarter mile inland. Those who make the trip are rewarded with great views and abundant wildlife including — silver salmon, brown bear and moose — and absolute removal from the world outside.
