We have made it to Alaska and have been pleasantly surprised by the warm, dry weather. After meeting our friends, Donna and Roger for lunch at a Russian restaurant we start the drive north towards Denali National Park. We choose the 8 hour trip into the Park that leaves at 9 am. Although there were sightings of bears, sheep and other animals they were almost all at a distance that required binoculars to make out any details. It was rather disappointing, but at least the weather was dry and not too cold.
