Finally into Denali National Park!
Tomorrow is our reservation for Teklanika Campground which is 29 miles into the park, but before we get cut off from the entire world we are spending a night in Reilly Creek Campground to get situated.
Denali is a complicated park to visit as you can only really get around on their green busses, more on that later.
We get to drive 29 miles into the park which is the furthest you can drive, but you can only go to and from the campground and nothing else.
We also buy our "Tek Pass" which is a bus ticket we can use to ride the green park buses for our entire stay. Here is a kicker of the park... you can only get 1 guaranteed trip on the bus, all others are on a first come first serve basis.
We booked our trip for Friday as Paul leaves Saturday and this way will see the whole park.
