McKinley RV Park & Campground, Healy, AK

A Moose
Saturday, July 11, 2015, McKinley RV Park & Campground, Healy, AK - 146.7 Miles Today, 5211.7 Miles for the Trip

It rained off & on overnight, but was nice enough to almost stop as we packed up. We stopped at a couple of Denali viewing sites listed in the Bearfoot Parks Highway Guide including the McKinley View Lodge - expensive coffee, but no view, the Denali View South - A good sign showing where the mountain would be (well is, but unseen), and the Denali View North where we had a mini fiberglass trailer convention - 2 Scamps, a Casita & my Escape. Since clouds completely hid Denali, you will have to do with some photos of the clouds where it is located, and pictures of other mountains.

After the glacier ( I don't know the name) we saw a couple of RVs & cars at the side of the road & pulled in behind them. On the other side of the road was a couple of Moose. Not the first of the trip, but the first that we could photograph.  More photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.

The last 20 miles of AK 3 to the Park Road as well as much of it into Healy is torn up with long waits & "follow me" trucks to weave through the construction.

We are in sites 31 & 32 at the McKinley RV Park & Campground (although the receipt says Miners Market. In any case, $32.03 for water & 20 amp Electric. The showers are a bit rough, but since there won't be any for the next 4 days, they will do!

Dinner will be something next door to the campground at the 49th State Brewing Company.

We may be out of touch for the next 4-5 days. I don't know if there is any cell service at the Teklanika River Campground. If not, updates will have to wait until we leave the park.

Until the next internet connection -
