Wednesday just has to rank up there as one of the best days we've had on the caravan thus far--we took the all day bus tour of Denali National Park and were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous day! The sun was out, not too many clouds and we were able to see Mt. McKinley from several points along the way. Most of the time the mountain is fogged in; in fact 70% of the visitors to the park do not get to see it, so we're now members of the 30% Club!! Plus we got to see a lot of animals--grizzlies, moose, caribou, Dall sheep, ptarmigan, arctic ground squirrels--about the only thing we didn't see were wolves. The tour bus driver said we saw more grizzlies in this one day than she had seen the whole previous week combined. How lucky we were!! So, I'm just gonna let the pictures do most of the talking for the rest of the post.
