They summitted on Friday and took 2 days to get back to base camp but had to wait out the weather to get a "ride" back to Talkeetna. We really enjoyed their stories and have a greater appreciation for the …

... and Mt McKinley was visible most of the morning on our ride into the park. We got off the bus four miles before the Eielson Visitor Center and had lunch watching the mountain disappear behind low clouds, then walked along the road to Eielson. Along the way we came upon a fox that was on the hunt for arctic ground squirrels - he seemed more concerned about the two of ...

... to copy every their mum was doing which resulted in some funny outcomes. After I had my fill of bears I flagged down another bus which continued onto the Eielson Visitor Centre (mile 66). Whilst at Eielson I read the following on a plaque... "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away ...

... The exception is private campers who walk in and agree to pitch camp no closer than half a mile and out of sight of any park road. So different from Yellowstone, which I also love, despite its RV logjams and tourists cornering bison on major highways. The landscape here is Montana on steroids. We were on a 7:30 green school bus shuttle that left the base in drizzly, foggy, much less than desirable weather, but in the next hour of steady climbing, we broke ...

... him, there would be no mistaking it with another. We knew instantly when we saw it. All through the Rockies, I would see peak after peak struggling to remember their names, there is no mistaking Mount McKinley. We took lots of pictures, but at the end they kind of all look the same.

    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.
