The results of the lottery are in. We will be going on Saturday, September 19. Has anyone done this in the past? How was it driving in?

I drove the road back in September 1978. Be sure to bring some gas cans with. Beautiful scenery with the tundra sporting reds and yellows. Of course, everyone wants to see large mammals, and you should not be disappointed: grizzlies, dall sheep, moose....

We ended up giving it to a friend since we were there earlier in the season.

Maybe I missed something looking at the link, but what is the point of the lottery? Is this a road that is normally closed to the public or something, so being able to buy this day pass is something special?

Well, its actually closed to private vehicles. So to get in the park you either hike, or sit on a bus with the rest of the tourists.
