Denali Visits

Between Seward and Chena Hot Springs we drove into the park four times. The first night we saw seven moose and not a single one was a calf (that is weird). We got to see a piece of the mountain on the second trip, and by the third one it was booming!
What a sight...everytime!

Hip Hip Hooray!!!
The other goal was to see Denali. It was achieved!

Great fireweed!

The roadside flowers were amazing.

Tundra rose and eskimo potato

One of the few moose we saw. He definitely made a show.

Hiking along the Savage River trail we encountered this mother ptarmigan with at least seven or eight chicks. They were such a pleasure to watch.

There was also a friendly marmot there to greet us!


Moose galore! They were everywhere.
