We took our time driving up to Denali NP as it was raining quite a bit. We are hearing this is one of the wettest summers up here in a long time. Thank you NOT very much Alaska.
This Cabellas in Anchorage is a huge outdoor store with a really nice overnight parking area for campers. We enjoyed their free hospitality.
Moving up the road bit to Wasilla. This campground looks like a real dump. It felt like being on the Beverly Hillbillies with Ma and Pa Clampett running the campground. We stayed here a few days to wait out a rainstorm. The rates were cheap and they had great wifi so we weren’t complaining. This was a typical camper.
The owners had a huge patch of rhubarb.
I traded a bar of Rose’s soap for this pile of deliciousness. Stewed rhubarb and custard here we come.
I thought this airport was quite posh.
Finally a clear day and we managed to see Mount Denali from the back side. Looks like a beast at over 20,000 feet.
We are heading into the park with no phone or internet for the next week. Keeping our fingers crossed for sunshine and wildlife.
