Greetings from Alaska!

Well, we made it! It's 9:12pm Alaska time (Midnight central time). I'm exhausted but having a good time. The 18 hours of daylight are just amazing. Driving from the airport the other night at 10:30pm we had to have our sunglasses on the sun was so bright. Such a weird experience!

We visited Denali National Park today and were able to actually see Mt. McKinley/Denali. They told us it has been so cloudy that few have see it this year. We have seen bear, moose, caribou, and Dall sheep. Hubby is totally in his element!

Mt. McKinley/Denali. Still some cloud cover but in person it really stood out from the other mountains. I am probably about 60 miles away from it at this point.

Tomorrow we are headed to Seward to hike the Exit Glacier.
