Denali National Park

For the first two weeks in September Gabe's Mom came to visit!!  We did lots of hiking and visiting some of the touristy spots in Fairbanks and North Pole.  I will blog about those later.  The most exciting thing we did was go to Denali National Park.  It was a cold, wet day.  The clouds were so low we couldn't see Mt. McKinley.  We were sad but all the wildlife we saw made up for that.  It was a great day!!

We took a shuttle bus and could get off wherever we wanted to.  Of course with it raining we didn't get do that.  Grayson didn't need to be in the rain.  Plus, I didn't want to run up on a grizzly bear!!  There is a road that only the park buses and professional photographers get to drive on.  Our bus went to mile 53 and turned around.  There was a gift shop at mile 53!!  Got to make that money!!  Here are some of the pictures of one of the most beautiful places I have seen in Alaska!


The colors are just amazing!!!

Can you find the lynx?

That road was steep and two buses had to pass each other on it!!!  i was holding my breath and I refused to look out the window on the side closest to the edge!

The little Dall sheep watching our bus go by!
