Found Sun in Denali Park

  Today we decided to drive to the park and hike in the rain. Sure glad we thought to bring our rain gear inside, it was pouring at the lodge.

  It is 121 miles from the lodge to the Savage River hike parking lot. As we passed the 80 mile point, the sky cleared a bit and the Sun came out. The park is open, but still early in the season and some things not open or being fixed etc. The park is higher and colder than North or South of it.

  Kathy had a yummy lunch packed and we ate well. After that it was a nice Sunny walk on park trails. We were most happy with our day and drove back into the rain towards the lodge.

  The people at the lodge got a big hail storm and piles of hail are still around. Denali is still hiding in the clouds. It is a fact that most tourist never see it, due to clouds.


  1. Very envious of your ability to spend time in Denali with or without the clouds.

    1. I am grateful for all National Parks.

      Just not the heat and humidity of Summer.
