Beaver dam near Cantwell

We Stayed in a quarry outside the par last night with a number of RV’s who also did not have reservations for the booked full park. it rained a teeny bit last night and there was a ton of traffic, but we still slept pretty well until nearly 10 am. the temperature was just right and the screens kept what few bugs there were out of the van.

we stopped in Nenana and saw the markers they use for the breakup bets
We ate at a Serbian restaraunt outside Denali

Kyle gets the catalog for this place- I wonder if they will ship the cabin kit to Juneau?

Well, Denali was kind of a bust. We had tickets for the 1 pm bus tour of the park, you can only drive part way in a private vehicle. Mellie had a meltdown while packing up the van in the morning when it was time to go and we missed the tour.

We are on our Way to Talkeetna for the night. might just get a pull through site for the night. not sure yet, but there are sites, or, I’m sure we can find something, there have been plenty of places that allow overnight parking along the roadside.

hopefully we will go into anchorage tomorrow, maybe get a room for some showers, and meet with my friend for Sushi at the secret sushi place Kyle told us about.

Time to drive!
