Denali Backcountry Adventure

Mushka was Bulgaria's finest tour problem solver extraordinaire
  This was one of Kathy's donations bonus gifts. I was not too thrilled with the idea of a long train ride, then a bus ride and then unknown hotel and then a 14-hour bus ride into Denali Park and another night in the hotel before another long train ride. But it was FUN.

Great food served here, who would know?

  After the getting up and driving to the train station to pay for four days of parking, we went inside and got our boarding passes and gave them our luggage. The weather had been forecast rainy, but they sure were wrong. we had great weather for the whole vacation.

This guy knew where to find a good meal also

  The train ride went well and we were taken a few miles South of the park to a place called Denali Cabins. That is when we discovered whoever put our tour together made a lot of mistakes. We had no room and no tour. Mushka called the manager and we were given a big room upgrade. Then told to take the free shuttle and where to get food like we eat. The tour would take more time to fix, but eat well and get settled into your room. That impressed me.

  This will be a four part post, perhaps more.


  1. "We had no room, no tour" ... what a way to start a vacation after a long train ride. I look forward to your four part post. I am glad to hear that weather experts in Alaska are just as good as the ones we have in 'the tropics' of Southern Indiana. :)

    1. Yes I was ready to hop on a plane and forget this trip idea. Then the very nice people at Denali Cabins changed my way of thinking.

  2. Glad to hear they fixed things. Sure sounded ominous. But I'd do any train ride to go to Denali.
