Leaving Denali

We left Denali National Park tuesday morning at 7:30 am Alaska time. As you can see it was snowing when we left. We traveled all day and crossed the Canada border at 5 pm. We stopped for the night at the Congdon campground in the Yukon Territory. We travel 562 miles on tuesday. Wednesday morning we got up and discovered we were having problems with the electrical system so only travel to Watson Lake, Yukon Territory and stopped for the night. Only traveled 422 miles today but hope to be back on the road in the morning. Would like to get back to the USA as soon as we can. FYI it snow today too. Just want to get where it is warm, have been cold long enough.

Tents at Riley Creek

The Road Lottery is on and we are full in the campground. Two of the sites have old army tents on them. They both had pipes out the top and stoves inside to heat them with. It was cool to see them.

Fall has arrived in Denali full force and the trees are turning colors all over the place. There is a hint of winter in the air and that makes us wanting to get out of Alaska before the snow flies. We only have 8 more days (5 1/2 working days) till we get on the road and head south away from the cold and snow. It has been a very good year but it is now time to go. Am looking forward to getting to the lower 48 states. It will be good to see friends and to be able to relax for a few months.

What did you say?

Oh no you don't, if you wanted that female you are going to have to fight for it.

These guys butted heads and pushed each other around for probly 20 minutes or more. I got it on video as well as Dennis taking this great picture before they finally wandered off into the brush. It was a once in a life time experiences. It is so great to work in Denali National Park.

Hey come back here

HEY HEY where are you going? Come back here those are my females and I do not feel like sharing> You know what I mean?


Oh no more company. This is not what he had in mind. Where did this other male come from?

The moose saga continues

Wow this is one lucky moose. Here comes the second female out of the brush on the other side of the road.

More moose

Thursday night outback again and we seen this male moose beside the road. He was standing there calling to another moose. Out of the brush came this female. OH cool he thought.
