Denali Continued

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” 
-John Muir
There is a 30% chance that a person would see Denali (Mt. Mckinley) as it is often surrounded by its own weather.  On the way we crested a hill and there it was, so amazingly big and white.  I had thoughts that I wished the forest were not there as the mountain went in and out of our view.  We stopped at a rest stop that had a panoramic view of the mountain range, but by the time we got there Denali has hid itself in the clouds.

The little guy and his mamma took a hike on the Taiga Trail that led down to Horeshoe Lake.

And when we got there we had snacks.

These bags of gravel were flown in by helicopter so they could be tampered down to improve the trail.  Just imagine all that goes in to keeping such a huge park.  Thank you trail crew, and thank you little man for wanting to help.
