Good Morning Trip

Rain Rain go away ..... The sun should be coming out later today so they say but we're pretty drenched in theses parts.

Nothing to exciting going on today.

Have a great day.

Wow, Michael, did you get to see Denali?? We were there at the end of May/beginning of June and never saw the mountain. Always a haze/fog surrounding most of the top 2/3's of it. What spot was this picture taken at? One of the lodges??

Yep that is Denali(the Mountain, unless you mean the park-which I went to as well). The guides said only 4% of days is it clear enough to see the whole mountain. Out of 6 days there only one was clear enough.

Photo was taken at Eielsen Visitor Center which is ~60miles into the National Park. I also went all the way to end, the first day it was open for this season, to mile 93 but it was cloudy so not worth it that day.

I believe we went as far as Eielsen, also, as we took the Tundra Wilderness Tour. We encountered snow while we were at Eielsen on June 1st. Our bus broke down maybe 5-8 miles from Eielsen and we had an extended stop at a lookout point while a rescue bus was sent to us. We enjoyed this tour, but missed seeing the mountain, Denali. We only had a five-day land tour; guess we should have gone for the six!!
