Mt McKinley

What a long day, we took the 5:30 am bus shuttle into Denali up to Wonder Lake. The ride to the lake is 5 plus hours depending upon what wildlife is viewed on the way, the bus stops for wildlife. We got off at Wonder Lake and walked around hoping to catch the next bus but the next two were full, did get on the next one good thing too I was tired of the mosquitoes there, it has been the only place so far with them being that bad.
We then stopped at Eielson Visitor to see if we could get a less packed bus and look around the center. We did and it was a pleasant trip back, we got to our car around 6 pm.
It was a beautiful day for our trip and we can count ourselves as the lucky 20% that get to see Mt. McKinley not covered in clouds.
We saw bear, caribou, moose, dahl sheep, golden eagles and a nesting loon.
I have more photos on my flickr site of Denali Nat'l Park.
