Denali

The most amazing park

Arrived by bus in Denali National Park in the afternoon after travelling past huge forest fires and countless hours of barren land.
Denali is over 6 million acres with over 600 glaciers and many mountains with Denali the highest at 20300 feet (Mt Cook 12340 feet) We travelled through the park and saw many bears, caribou and dall sheep. Only the tail end of a moose though.
Rafted the 2 degree Nanana river and flew over around the mountain on a ski plane. We were ment to land on a glacier but the cloud cover was a little unpredictable and although we had food and sleeping bags on board, the pilot didn't want to be stuck there for a few days. He tried very hard which made for a great trip. He circled a mother bear and her two cubs for us as well.

Having a great time. The tour has been just the right balance of organised activities and free time although the endless daylight is making us tired. Find ourselves still up at midnight thinking it is 8pm with most days starting at 7am
