Denali National Park, day 13

This is continued from our Alaska trip in August. With so much to see and do and the distance to cover, I fell behind on the blog and skipped day 9 – 13.

We had some regrets leaving the Denali Highway and the solitude, wonderful views . . . suddenly we are in traffic, paved roads, service stations, civilization.

We turned north on Highway 3 (Parks Highway) and wow, at 60 miles an hour you can cover some territory. Before we new it we were at Riley Creek Campground.

We had stopped before the park and tried to stock up on veggies and groceries but that is hard to do if you are not in Anchorage or Fairbanks.

The campground was pretty, lots of trees, showers you could buy (!), a visitor store and a much needed laundry. We had been boon-docking for 4 nights now and it was time for a rest.

Our campsite was across from bathrooms with running water and flush(!) toilets. Met some fellow travelers and a group of bicyclists that had ridden from Montana to Denali. You meet some crazy people!
