Denali National Park, AK, Day 4

A Grizzly Bear

Wednesday, July 15, 2015, Denali National Park, AK, Day 4 - 0 Miles Today, 5251.9 Miles for the Trip

We woke up to sunshine this morning, so Nancy caught an early bus to do some hiking, and Don, Anne & I took the bus to the Eielson Visitor Center. If McKinley was visible, we would catch a different but that went further to Wonder Lake, but by the time we reached the center Mt McKinley was burred in clouds.

I did see Shirley, our driver from Monday & took a photo. You definitely get a different trip with different drivers. Our driver today didn't stop for animals as often, and gave very little information about the park on the drive. In any case, we did get some good photos. A couple of the bears were closer to the bus than Monday, but there was a haze in the sky that limited distant shots, and a woman who must have been from the south of where ever she was from - it was in the 70's in the bus & she insisted we close the window in our seat across the aisle and one row behind her. She even was wearing a ski jacket & had a headband covering her ears! Still, a successful trip.
More photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.
We took the return trip to the campground on the same bus, arriving a little after 4:00. I started spicing the chicken we will be having, along with corn, for dinner.

Until the next internet connection -
