I've gone on Delta and on Continental before on awards. 25K miles for it is an excellent deal. Anchorage now has prices that aren't too much worse than the lower 48 and you can sometimes get good deals through Priceline. It's much easier and more affordable to do a fly/drive to there than it was 15 or even 10 years ago. Now's a good time to do it before more people figure that out.

Also don't forget that on DL you can take a stopover. I once did ATL-ANC-LAX-ATL when they flew ANC-LAX non-stop. Today I think SLC or SEA would be the more likely places.
