Denali, here I come!

Tonight I'll be getting on an airplane headed to Anchorage. Tomorrow I'll be on a train riding up to Denali National Park. My friend, Kassia, and I are staying two nights at a lodge just outside the park (there is no lodging in the park). I was reading in a guide book that Mt. McKinley is only visible about 25% of the time during the summer. Here's hoping that Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday fall into that 25%. I would love to see the 20,000+ peak, North America's tallest mountain!

Enjoy the train ride! We did that in January 09 and did get to see the mountain. It's a great trip!

I hope you get to see Denali. I've been lucky in that I've seen the mountain at least 80% of the time I've visited the park. Earlier in the day the better. By the time the afternoon rolls around, the clouds tend to as well.

Enjoy!
