Denali National Park

Leaving Fairbanks, I rode on the Alaska Railroad to Denali National Park. Riding in the open air at the back of my dome car, I was so excited to see those first views of the Alaska Range and the Nenana River.

Staying at Denali Education Centeron on the Nenana River just outside the park, we had three days of adventures, including a hike along the Savage River at Mile 13 of the Denali Road, a daylong bus trip inside the park to Eleison Visitor Center at Mile 66, moose in camp, moose on a photography excursion, and a hike to Triple Lakes.
