Fred, Nate, Ford, and myself took a trip out to Alaska to hike, backpack, and fish Wrangel St. Elias National Park and Denali National Park. The trip started with flying into Anchorage, AK. We then drove to McCarthy where we picked up a bush plane to drop us into Tebay Lakes in Wrangel St. Elias. Spent 5 days catching tons of Rainbows in and around the lakes. After Tebay Lakes, we took the Denali Highway up to Denali National Park. Fished the creeks and streams along Denali Hwy for Graylings and Rainbows. Then spent the last days in Denali National Park for wildlife viewing.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
