Looking for the mountain

The mountain should be above the reader board

Alaskan Veteran's Memorial

60 Degrees and Overcast

From Denali National Park to Denali State Park, 101 Miles

Stayed at Byers Lake Campground

A very uneventful and disappointing day. We planned to stay another night in the area because there are supposed to be very good views of The Mountain (Denali) from the state park, but it was a very cloudy, drizzly day, and nothing was visible except in the imagination! The first campground we pulled into with the best potential view was nothing but an overnight parking lot, so with nothing to see, we went on.

It got cooler during our travels, dropping from 60 to 54 degrees, and we saw no animals at all. We stayed at the second of 4 state park campgrounds, with no mountain view from here, but at least it is in the trees and looks like a campground.
