Driving into Denali
Everyone can drive to Mile 14 and then most turn around.
After a few minutes we crept up and followed them down the road but some people who obviously didn't read the rules buzzed the poor guys on 3 motorcycles and they ran into the woods... Morons!
At this point we are through the checkpoint where they drill into even more some of the rules about driving and how we aren't allowed to use the car again until we leave our campground.
It really does seem different from any other park I've been to. So remote, so wild, unspoiled.
So we are on our own, no outlets, no cell service or anything. The only real means of getting information would have been the Camp Host but we find out they have quit earlier in the summer.
They have fairly restrictive generator and quiet hours which make for a very peaceful campground.
Sure you see most of the wildlife from the bus but they really encourage people to "Get off the Bus" and do some hiking and enjoy the park.
We plan to for sure.
