Here are a few more Denali photos. When we took the hike with the ranger, he talked about the red squirrel. It eats spruce cones, and stores them for the winter. When eating, it bites away the outer covering first, which falls to the ground and eventually all those little bits and pieces become a midden. Then the squirrel uses the midden to hide nuts in, for the winter. Middens can be several feet deep—not the result of just one squirrel, but many over the years. Just as he finished speaking, a red squirrel appeared and posed for our group.

Last photo is Karen, Erin’s cousin, in her gift shop at the entrance to Denali, Northern Lights.
