When we asked many of the Alaska locals about Denali we were told “Denali State Park is way better than the National Park” or “Don’t even bother with the National Park, just spend your time in the State Park.”
We really took these comments into consideration when planning our time in Alaska but I’m happy we decided to fully experience both parks.
If there is one major lesson, one that we learn over and over again it’s this: Expectations are everything and we shouldn’t have any, if at all possible.
If we expect something amazing and receive anything short of it, then disappointment is sure to be the outcome. If we expect something dreadful and it ends up being great, we’re surprised. I don’t know about you but I’ll take surprise over disappointment any day.
We know we shouldn’t go into any new experience, or place, with expectations, but sometimes we forget…so hang in there with us on this one, there is a happy ending.
