We left the lodge at 7:00 a.m. in fog and rain.
Our hopes of seeing Mt. McKinley or even any wildlife were slim.
Eight hours on a bumpy road in an old school bus in the rain
ndid not seem like a lot of fun.
But we were in Alaska
where anything can happen.
So we put on a smile and headed out.
As usual the scenery was magnificent.
We had barely entered the park
and were greeted by some moose.
Further down the road we found a
grizzly bear and her cubs.
Dahl sheep were on the hilltops.
And the sky was clearing!
And we got to see ptarmagin
and Ground Squirrel
and best of all....
We made the 30% Club!
and could not have been happier.
What had begun as a depressing, dismal day
turned into one of the most exciting and
beautiful days of a lifetime.
So glad to share this adventure with you :-)
Until next time ~
