The Queen of the Mountains, Denali

We are in Denali today, in fact, I am off on the National Park Service drive into the park in just a few minutes. Yesterday we came up on the train from Anchorage, and a lovely drive it was. Those big double decker, glass domed passenger car with a restaurant downstairs. Just a little different than the means of transportation people coming up here, looking for gold or just a new life, had a century or a century and a half ago. I was reading in a book I bought yesterday. Yes, I think you may get a few reviews of some Alaskan related books in the future. Now he issue is carrying them home.

Well, now that I found the wifi hot spot here at hotel, I will try to get back to you before we leave tomorrow and tell you how it went...the tour and my ATV trip this evening!


  1. I'm glad to hear you are still having a great time, and I'm still jealous!

  2. well, now that I changed it to the correct date, I found my post...

    Spent the day in Denali, and saw lots of critters and yes, the we were lucky enough to have the Queen out in all her glory and I got some good pics that I will post when I get a free minute or two or 20.

  4. Alaska sounds fabulous! However, as soon as you mentioned Denali I was (embarassingly) reminded of the Twilight novels, because one of the vampire "families" is from there.
