Denali National Park
Today we took the 8 hour bus trip up the Denali Park road. Fortunately, the weather cleared for the most part and we were rewarded with some fantastic wildlife and landscape views. Sorry for so many photos, but there were too many to choose from!
This Grizzly Bear was along the side of the road. It didn’t seem too concerned with all the people watching.
This caribou was also right along the side of the road. He posed for us for several minutes
This red fox walked along side the bus for quite a while
Another caribou. There were so many caribou that the driver quit stopping for photos.
Dall Sheep way up in the rocks
This was our transport for the day. 8 hours on a school bus was long enough! The only way to travel in the park beyond the 16 mile point is via these buses.
The following are landscape photos taken along the way.
The only negative for the day was we did not get to see the top of Mt. McKinley which is the highest peak in North America at 20320 feet.
