See the snow cap in the picture? That's Denali, or Mt Mckinley if your prefer. We never really got a good look at. They say only 1 out of 3 visitors ever gets to see it because it's usually surrounded by clouds. This proved true during our two previous days of travel when we should have been able to see it from scenic viewpoints on the road. Cool in person? Sure. Super impressed... we were not. The road into the park is 90 miles long and you can only drive to mile 14. Want to go further? Pony up some dough and pay the park to take you in on a bus. We opted not to spend $100 for the two of us to sit on a school bus full of sweaty bodies for 12 hours in order to get a better view.
It's not all bad though. We're here, we made it, let's do something. Perhaps a hike through bear infested woods. That always sounds like a good idea. Bears. Grizzly bears. They will eat your face off.
