So this morning we got up a 5 AM to catch the first bus passing our campground at 6 something AM. The earlier you can get west in the part the better chance you have of seeing Denali.
Here we see it from a overlook our bus stopped at to let us take pictures.
The drive knows the mountain could be covered in clouds at any time.
Some people on our bus lived in Fairbanks for 25 years told us it took them 8 years of visiting the park to get a view Denali like this.
We are very lucky!
Our bus is going on to Wonder Lake and although it is more time on the bus we decide to go as the view of the mountain is more dramatic there because there are no high mountains between you and Denali.
The bus stays long enough for us to each lunch and pick some blueberries.
This is all I get as we only had about 20 minutes to pick.
My brother keeps mentioning a simple cobbler recipe so I try to make it!
I bake it with the brownie setting on my convection microwave.
And will make a good breakfast tomorrow!
It is a good thing we've seen Denali because we joked we weren't going to leave until we saw it!
