Denali Not

August 2, 2011

After reaching the end of the Denali Highway we drove 30 miles up the road to Denali National Park. One of highlights of Alaska. We arrived in rain with low lying cloud obscuring the mountains. We checked out the forecast in the visitor centre – 7 days of rain and cloud and promptly headed South out the of the Park. We’re going to come back in a week or so when hopefully the weather will have improved. There is no point being somewhere with stunning mountain views if you can’t see them.

    I stumbled on your blog and am enjoying being a fly on your windscreen during your adventure. I spent two weeks in mid-May roaming around Alaska (at least some of the parts not closed due to snow and accessible by road) and if you do get back up to Denali, I encourage you to stop off at Talkeetna and take a flight to land on Ruth’s Glacier offered by K2 Aviation. It was spectacular and the easiest way to scale McKinley. Also in Talkeetna is a great breakfast place called the Road House. Half a scrambled is 4 eggs and whole is 8 so make sure to bring your appetite.

    Safe travels
