The next morning we got up and went to breakfast. We walked over and took the shuttle to another part of the property, went in and had a great Cinnamon roll and some chocolate milk. Walked around seeing a little more of the lodge. It was time to go on our excursion into Denali National Park. We walked up to the lodge to catch the bus. We will be around 5 hours to go 17 miles into the park. We made several stops for taking pictures and stretch our legs. We were also told that we are now part of the 30% club. Only 30% of the people who take these tours are able to see the Denali Mountain, the rest of the time it is covered with clouds. We stopped and walked up to a little cabin that the rangers use for a rest stop when making their rounds in the winter time. The head ranger was there to tell us about it. You will see in one of my pictures that there is long nails around the window. The reason is to deter bears from trying to come in the window.
At our turn around point we met a native woman who is from the Athabaskan tribe. She informed us about the different tribes, how they live. And yes she said no matter what people think she gets cold.
