6-8-13 Teklanika is a campground 29.1miles into the park. We’ll be here for a few days – taking the shuttle to the end of the road – Kantishna – an old gold mining settlement – hoping to see Mt Denali along the way.
The only way into this area is by bus. Today we hit the jackpot with Wendy the Bus Driver! She was terrific in sharing items of interest and animals along the way. We saw caribou……though from a distance.
We saw Grizzly Bears 4 times – a single grizzly x 2, a mom and 2 cubs, and another bear as he came up to the road….. they are hungry and eating as much as they can.N
The road is basically single lane – gravel – some wash board and a few pot holes now and then. A scenic ride along the Polychrome mountain ridge.
Maybe we’ll see Denali on another day……..
