This is Ford Model T Snow Flyer. This was used to plow snow in Alaska. See the picture of the car driving thur snow drift.

1934 Offenhauser

Thursday we made a trip to Fairbanks and while we were there we visited an Antique Car Museum. One of the cars was this 1934 Offenhauser midge. It is like the one Dennis's dad use to race. More pictures to come later.

Dall Sheep

Today we took a hike up the Savage River Trail hoping to see Dall Sheep. We did not think we were going to be this lucky. When we topped the ridge, there were 5 male Dall Sheep right there. We sat for an hour or more and just watched them eat. This was a very exciting day and well worth the hike to the top of the ridge.

Dual purpose RV

We know we have had lots of rain this summer in Denali but we did not think we had this much rain. I guess this is the newest dual purpose RV. No kidding this set of guest camp in Riley Creek in this boat. It is one of the strangest things we have ever see.

Suspension bridge in July

This is how far they had gotten 3 days ago. Moving right along they should be finished by August and we will walk the trail and take more pics.

Our visitor

We had a visitor yesterday. Here is the story. A few days ago we asked the Wildlife Techs to put a live trap under our Motor Home as there was a squirrel getting up in to the front compartment. The trap sat there for a couple of days and then one morning when we came back from our 10 a.m. rounds it was gone. We thought that the Wildlife Techs had came and gotten it. That afternoon the Techs came by and stopped and asked what happen to their trap. They had not taken it and thought some one else had walk off with it. We then started to tell them about our fox who was hanging out at our Motor Home on the patio. It was not moving even when people would walk up on the lot or we would try to get back in the Motor Home. While talking about this they starting looking around. Come to find out the cage was under the Motor Home and there was a squirrel in it. There was part of his tail missing and all we can figure out is the fox tried to get the squirrel and pulled the cage back under the Motor Home. So the Wildlife Techs took our squirrel and will release him into the back country and fox, well, it is still stopping by for a brief moment now and then to see if there is any more squirrels hang out it can get.
