A wonderful and welcome slow start to the day. We started the day with coffee at 10:30 and then shuttle bus to the Denali National Part Visitors Centre. What an impressive visitors centre! We spent about about an hour and a half watching a beautiful movie called 'Heartbeat of Denali' showing Denali in all seasons (it had minimal narration and just left us to enjoy the changing scenery and animal/plant/human activities is each season) and reading/playing with ...

Lunch with the Hoopsters before they moved on to Denali and we went back to Talkeetna for a jet boat tour up ...
... to a large avalanche barreling down a rock cliff, blowing great puffs of powder high into the sky. The curving glaciers were dirty white with ribbons of gray sediment running on the outer edges and down the middle where the great rivers of ice joined together. A closer inspection showed that some areas were a mass of ice hills, folds and hummocks that looked like the up and down scribbles of an angry toddler. McKinley ...
