Ride to Eielson

6-11-2013 --- After a very cloudy and rainy day on Monday, decided to again take the bus to Eielson visitor center.  Each driver has their own spiel of the sights along the way.Denali Again 004

Right off we saw a wolf trotting in the bushes along the road, but did not get a picture – so here’s one from the museum.  We also saw another fox trotting along the road.North Pole   030

We saw 4 different bears today --- they’re hungry and amble along eating roots and snacks along the way.  The Dall Sheep seemed to be much higher today with all of the bears around.   And of course there were caribou along the way.2013-06-11 Denali Again 016

At Toklat Visitor Center – mile 53 – they have Caribou and Moose Antlers that you can lift – boy are they heavy!

And on to Eielson mile 66, but Denali is only peaking thru the clouds.
