We picnicked along the way to Denali, enjoyed the wonderful view of the mountains as we approached the park. We stopped at the park long enough to pick up our tickets for our 7:45am start. Then back in the car for a few more miles to Healy to the Denali Park Hotel. This "hotel" had been in the park but was moved in 2002 to Healy. We knew from the description that it wouldn't be lavish by any means. But it had wifi and a refrigerator so what more could a person want.
