    Up early this morning as Jenny hadn't changed her alarm to Alaska time. I stayed snuggled in bed a little longer but Jenny eventually got up as we had a big day on. We had booked the shuttle bus to Eielson which is at about mile 55 into the park.

    We decided to walk to the Wilderness Access Centre where you get the shuttle bus from and of course headed right off track because we thought we knew where we were going. We had to back track a bit and then got a bit ...

    In and out of bed all night last night. I went to bed around 12 and looked out my window and the aurora was just outside my window shining for me. It was similar to the previous nights display so I lay back down and kept watching occasionally out the window. The blokes next door came home from work – they are working on the roads I think, at around 2 am. I checked the window and the sky was alight. There were lights going in all directions and all shapes. I wrapped myself up in ...

    Today we took a 12 hour bus tour into Denali National Park. I was a great day.

    We were blessed to get to see Mt. McKinley - this was Keith and Brenda's first time. Bobby and I have been really blessed and lucky to get to see it three times. You have less than an 1/3 chance to see it! It was visible most of the day with some great photo opportunities.

    This time we got to go all the way in - ...

    Woke early to leave at 6am to catch our 6:45 bus to Wonder lake in Denali National Park. We thought it would take us 30 minutes judging by how long it took us to get back the previous night, but because we didn't get stuck behind any traffic I was able to drive much faster and we got there in just 15 minutes. It was good to be early anyway and we got a good seat.This was to be an 11 hour round trip if you stayed on the ...

    ... There are always going to be parts of it that are uncomfortable, inconvenient, boring - or - in this case - all three! With aching neck and shoulder already a problem, this boneshaker bus with no headrests and tatty plastic seats was not in the least appealing to me. When the driver announced that the heater and microphone were broken, it began to resemble a torture chamber. For this stage of our adventure, I armed myself with ...
