We got to see snowshoe rabbits, artic ground squirrels (reminded us of prairie dogs), caribou, moose, dall sheep, golden eagles, fox, owl & babies, and grizzly bears & cubs. All in an eleven hour period! We didn’t see the Mountain as she was covered in clouds. We also were able to see and capture some beautiful landscape scenery. We were able to enjoy the brand new visitors’ center at Eielson where we learned that it had just opened three days prior.
We will be here for another 6 days then on Tuesday June 17th head to Homer. Can’t share any images as the internet connection is one step above two cans and a string but we will just as soon as connections improve.
Marcia – you got to try the hot chocolate at the Denali Wilderness Center a choice of either white or dark (Sandy had the white and Don the dark)
