Denali National Park.

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 P1130399roll 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 P1130414were 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 P1130429trying 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.

    • I am not sure what the problem is un less the panoramic picture is stopping every thing I can not get it to work either. I will mess around with it and see if I can figure it out. Thank you for letting me know though for I was hoping it was just because I posted it. 😦 Jim

    • Ok John I had to remove and reinstall all pictures to get them to work. The panoramic would not do right so I just removed it. Thank you again for bringing this to my attention. 🙂 Jim
