Denali

6-6-13  Today we took the green shuttle bus to Savage River - ~15 miles from the campground.  The skies were fairly clear and temp in the 60’s today….. a great day for a walk!Denali 003

Just a few wild flowers blooming – spring is late!

Just 2 weeks ago, the Savage River was wild with snow melt.

Steve & Lila Dudley and 2 granddaughters, and Fred & Lynn Persky arrived today.  It was Cabin Night for dinner of salmon and/or ribs along with entertainment sharing the history of Alaska.

And what a neat surprise to see a rainbow after the show!Denali 055

Tomorrow we take the RV 29 miles into the Teklanika Campground for 5 nights.  Doubt we’ll have phone service to send pictures until we leave.  Though we have seen Denali from Anchorage, Fairbanks and the North & South viewpoints with clear blue skies, we haven’t seen Denali from within the park yet.  Hopefully this week.

Bill and I are in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana and I think there is more snow in the mountains here. Love reading your adventures.
