... room today to do that, $500......a person." We got back in the RV and continued heading south. In Eagle River we stopped to go to the Native Heritage Center. It is similar to Strawberry Banke or Fort at #4 for the native people. Seeing all their homes and talking to people about how they lived was very interesting. There was also a sled dog team there belonging to John Baker, who races in the Iditarod and won in 2011. We took ...

The Alaska Board of Geographic Names changed the name of the mountain to Denali, which is how it is referred to locally.
