Denali trip, Part 1

Remember to click on the pictures to make them larger.
Greg got off work early and we loaded up the car and headed for Denali. With only a couple of stops we made it to Healy in about 4 1/2 hours. After unloading our supplies at the hotel, we headed over to Rose's Cafe for dinner. Greg once again challenged and defeated the 1 pound Grizzly burger. His picture should be appearing on the Wall of Fame yet again. After we ate, we drove over to Denali National Park. We saw a moose almost immediately upon entering the park. She was walking along beside the road and grazing as she went. We drove down to Savage River pausing briefly to look for a lynx that a passing bus had spotted. Greg got a few pics of the girls and me as we strolled along the river. One area was closed because birds were nesting on the rocks. Got a photo of a gull with its two new babies under its wings. After returning to the room Greg's old friends, Nathan and Stacie, stopped by for a brief visit. What are the odds that 3 former Tennessee park rangers would meet up in Healy, Alaska? Nathan and Stacie are quite the adventurers and have come up to Alaska to work and play for the summer. Greg was quite delighted to see them and catch up. Hopefully, we will see them again later this summer.
