Sometimes I have pretty amazing days!
Occasionally I have to remind myself that my life can be pretty cool. I live at Denali Park, Alaska. I’m surrounded by mountains. I live on the banks of the glacier-fed Nenana river. I can tour Denali National Park on my weekends and see bears, caribou, moose, Dall Sheep, wolves, fox, and sometimes even a lynx.
Adding to the fun is the ability to do day tours with a lot of the companies in Denali Park. Sometimes, like yesterday, I have double the pleasure, double the fun.
Yesterday morning started off right, getting on a Glacier Landing flightseeing tour with Fly Denali at 8:00am. The flight, on a classic DeHaviland Turbo Beaver, is absolutely gorgeous. We landed on the 3,500 feet thick Ruth Glacier. I had hoped we would land on a different glacier, since the Ruth is the glacier we landed on last year as well, but conditions dictated the Ruth. Not that I was complaining!
Here’s your 2 minute highlight reel. Hope you like it!
Rafting last Friday on the Nenana river was such a blast that I had to do it again. My company offers rafting, something I need to take advantage of more often. The water right now is big – multiple solid Class 4 rapids, with plenty of class 3 thrown in. Woo hoo!
Since I’m now the official keeper of the Denali Park Resorts Facebook page, I took out our helmet cam for the float. Here’s some of the highlights.
Thanks for tuning in!
