today as we awoke to a steady pouring rain.I guess the rain has found us.Although we have had rain off and on, this is the first rain heavy
enough to keep us in since Prince
as we have the generator running we are snug and warm, but the battery seems to
not be holding a charge well so running the gas heater fan drains it quickly. When the rain let up we decided to do some of
the indoor activities offered by the park.Our first stop was the VisitorCenter.They have a nice display of the plants,
animals and other aspects of the park, including its history.We also watched the brief video about the
park showing the park and its residents (animals) during the four seasons.
left the VisitorCenter
we noticed that the train was in the station heading toward Anchorage.So, we made our way to the pullout where you can see the train cross the
trestle over the RileyCreek.
lunch we stopped at the Murie Center of Science and Learning in the park.They have a few hands on exhibits and present
talks in the morning.
made one more run to SavageRiver looking for
wildlife, finding none we returned to the trailer to charge the battery on last
we say goodbye to Denali and start traveling
south.Our first stop will be Talkeetna.
