Picked our friend, Doris, up around 9:00 Saturday morning and headed north toward Fairbanks. The roads weren't too busy and the day was gorgeous and sunny. We weren't too far from Talkeetna when we managed to first spot the top of Denali among the puffy white clouds. Shortly after entering the Denali borough we spotted a huge patch of wild blueberries on the side of the road. Doris and I wandered out into the meadow to try our hand at blueberry picking in the wild. In just a few minutes we both had a small handful to nibble on! They were sweet and yummy! Our setting was so beautiful we could have easily spent the rest of the afternoon here. But as we still had a long drive ahead of us, we jumped back in the car and headed north.
