was bright and sunny as we prepared to drive the 100+ miles to Denali.We were
hoping that the weather and sky would stay clear to give us a look at Mt.McKinley
once again.The drive down was easy as
the road was good all the way.We did
stop in Fairbanks
first to get the bearings greased on the trailer after going through so much
dust on the roads.
several times along the way including a stop to photograph a moose eating
happily in a pond.
drove down the Parks Highway,
Mt.McKinley looms straight ahead of
you.The mountain was in full view, just
not nice and crystal clear.
by the time we arrived in Denali and set up
the trailer, clouds had moved in, obscuring most of the mountain.So after sitting for a while, hoping the
mountain would make an appearance, we traveled a little farther into the park
to SavageRiver.We have hiked the trail there in the past and will do it again while we
are here.For tonight we just looked
around a little.
headed back out of the park, MountDeborah, which is not in
the park, glistened ahead with it snow covered peaks.
dinner, we went through a few of the shops in the area.Then to bed, as tomorrow we must be in the
park early to catch the bus to WonderLake.
