Awoke to a bright sunny morning. Took Mo for a walk first thing and could see Denali from the Highway - - quickly got the camera and took a few shots. Hard to get good shots with clouds behind the mountain - - but it was spectacular (especially at 6:30 AM) We stopped at WalMikes just up the road from the campground - - what a neat place. He had a little bit of just about everything. We headed on up the highway and stopped at the South Mountain View overlook in Denali State Park - - got a couple shots of Denali (Couldn't see the top) Had another moose and her calf run across the road in front us today. Didn't get a picture. The only critter pricture we got today was of a very calm sea gull that was standing in a turnout on the Denali Park road. I slid open the side door of the van to take photos and he just stood there looking at me. Gena, Charlie and Keery are going to take the Shuttle Bus out to Wonder Lake tomorrow (leaves at 9:15 and is supposed to last 11 hours) I'll take them over in Kerry's van and then I'll stay in camp with Mo.
