June 8

Today was Bus day in Denali.  You can only travel 15 miles into the park by private transport unless you are camping at one of the more interior campgrounds.  We are camped just a couple miles inside the park.  Today we took a park shuttle bus 84 miles into the park to Wonder Lake.  The round trip took about 12 hours.

We hiked about a mile to the bus pickup point at 6:15 am and saw a Mommy Moose and her two babies bedded down in the campground area.

The trip was great!!  We saw many Caribou.  We stopped counting after 70 and we were only half way in.  We saw a Red Fox, Golden Eagle, Moose, two Marmot, 17 adult Dall Sheet and two babys.

We saw 2 single Grizzly bears.  The high spot of the trip was when we saw a Mother Grizzly Bear and her two babies on the way out and on the way back.

It was a great day in the park!!!

Reality set in however when l got back to the campsite after a long day and found out it was my turn to do laundry.  The good news is, my number will not be up again for several days.
