Hardly anyone spoke English in the store. It took them 10 minutes to find our "reservation" . When we finally got to head for our site that was reserved months ago there was someone in our spot. There were only 3 spaces occupied...what a joke. It is a beautiful spot with an amazing view but everything is in disrepair. The WiFi works though, or I wouldn't be able to post this.

Up at 4 am for our trip into Denali on the 5:15 bus. We saw lots of beautiful scenery and a lot of wildlife! Definitely worth the early morning as we saw nearly no animals on the way back. Our bus driver was hard to hear but informative. We are pretty sure he is a bear whisperer. Lunched at Wonder Lake and returned on the same bus. Returned to camp …
... a wander and seeing the hot springs (wish we had bought our bathers). The accommodation is in little cottages or rooms and there is veggie gardens everywhere obviously providing for the restaurants. There seemed to be lots of tour groups but also day visitors like us, using the facilities.
Back on the road and we encountered our first petrol fill up mistake. Kevin didn't know you had to pay before you fill, and I didn't know that while I was standing waiting to pay, nothing ...

Headed off in our lovely big SUV north on the Fairbanks road. We watched hour upon hour of lovely mountain vistas roll past as we caught up on each other's comings and goings over the last few months.
Arrived in the town of Talkeetna late morning, and had a wander around. Talkeetna was a prospectors town - the major staging point where the railroad from Seward and Anchorage ...
... 30! After breakfast we headed to Glitter's Gulch. The students had 2 hours to shop. At first I thought that was a long time, but the students were great. They were very respectful to the shop owners and found some neat buys. Some of the boys wanted to purchase knives but P2P won't allow them to carry weapons and shipping was way to expensive! After shopping we went to the Denali Visitor's Center for lunch. The Salmon bake made our ...
So the day started with pretty weather, but not strong hopes of seeing "The Mountain". We drove north toward Denali and as we got to the first places where Mt McKinley can be seen on a clear day we saw only clouds. We stopped for 15-20 minutes to watch a moose forage along side the road. We got to the Denali South Viewpoint in Denali State Park by late morning and had a nice view of the "foothills" (5,000+ foot mountains) but ...
