|The road trip from Fairbanks to Denali was an easy 2.5 hour drive. We made 2 stops for gas, just to make sure we had a full tank for our generator. Our check-in at Riley Creek was fast and easy. Just a few miles after we left Riley Creek, we saw a momma moose and 2 calves just enjoying their snack on fresh vegetation along the side of the road. At Teklanika, we found our site and settled in. Later in the afternoon, we explored the campground and went for a short walk on the river bed hoping to see more moose, but no luck. Just as we were getting ready to get the grill out, the afternoon showers rolled in.
