Denali Trip, Day 2, Part 3

Remember to click on the pictures to make them larger.

Once we got to the Toklat River stop, the bus driver said we would get a 20 minute break. Greg and I took this opportunity to walk back on the park road and the bus would pick us up when it left. We walked a bit and spotted some tracks from the road. Greg walked down a small incline and discovered some large bear tracks. They didn't appear to be very fresh so we didn't feel unsafe. We continued to walk and hopped the bus about 1/2 mile up the road. The bus began the journey back to the Wilderness Access Center. It was a beautiful ride back, in fact it is breath-taking in any direction here. Returning to the Center about 9:15, we were tired and hungry from the long day. Drove back to the Denali Lodge and enjoyed fresh crab dip and halibut sandwiches on the deck at a bistro. Got a few more pictures of some beautiful statues around the lodge before calling it a night.
