On our way back to Cantwell

Clouds are dropping onto the mountain tops


The rain is coming



Today we drove to Denali National Park, the unfortunate part is..Denali hiding in the clouds so we didn't get to see it. Won't be able to go back tomorrow because we have a 50% chance of rain .... It'll be in the clouds again once again.

We did get some nice photos but not as many as we had hoped for. Shortly after leaving for the park, we did see some moose & there was one near the Denali Park entrance sign (which we didn't get a photo...all you'd see is his back side).

Denali's name means "the high one" (AKA Mount McKinley) , the park encompasses 6 million acres, its centerpiece is 20,310 ft. is the highest peak in North America.

We drove our truck the allowed 15 miles into the park with a personal vehicle, if you wish to travel further, you must take a tour bus...we checked into getting tickets, but they were booked. Good thing, we got to not see Denali for free instead of paying for tickets & not seeing Denali.

The plus is...we got to see views of Denali yesterday as we drove up Hwy 3 to Cantwell.
