    After raining all day yesterday, the rain continued through
    the night and into the morning. Our attempt to change the tickets for our trip today into Wonder Lake for tomorrow was unsuccessful, so off in the rain we went. It has been raining for the past two days and the area is showing the effects of the rain.

    On the trip on Tuesday, our driver told us that the braided rivers that crisscross the area ...

    Into every life and trip some rain must fall. Well today it was a lot of rain. We were supposed to move into Savage River Campground today, but with the heavy rain and cold temperatures, we decided we would be better off to stay where we had some more modern facilities. The campground where we have spent the last two nights had room for us to stay two more nights.

The town now is mostly lodges that visitors to the park ...

    The drive to Denali from Fairbanks is not a long drive. We hoped to see "The Mountain" along the way but clouds ahead of us prevented us from seeing it on our drive in. The only town of any size between Fairbanks and Denali is Nenana.

    Nenana is the home to the Ice Classic. Every year a black and white tripod is frozen into the ice on the Tanana River. Then bets are taken as to the exact time the ice will break up in the spring and stop the clock in ...

    ... 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 ...
