    This was a very entertaining brown bear we saw in the park from the safety of the tour bus

    I really enjoyed this part of your trip! When we visited Denali (called Mt. McKinley then) we camped at a primitive campground near Toklat ranger Station--you could drive private vehicles on all the roads. I think you would learn more on a tour bus however. Our weather wasn't good and we didn't see the mountain. Your pictures were spectacular! Missed you at the rally--you weather guys would have freaked out at the 5 hours of thunder and lightening storm we had! Some pictures on the forum rally thread and a few links I posted there. It was quite an experience.

      Linda, our trip to Alaska has really been a trip down memory lane for you. We are at the fam camp on Fort Rich right now!

      We saw the reports and pictures of the infamous thunderstorm night at the rally. You had to wonder what was up when we stayed away! We would have enjoyed it! That will be talked about for years!

      Hugs, Arleen & Shawn
