Day 2 of our honeymoon started with a morning riverboat cruise down the Chena river that runs through Fairbanks. Needless to say there were a few people along for this short trip.
Along the way we witnessed a landing and take off of the most popular transportation in Alaska, as well as a visit to the sled dog training home of David Monson. His wife Susan Butcher has won the Iditarod four times but she passed away in 2006. You can see more information at http://www.trailbreakerkennel.com.
We even were able to touch the pelt of the fiercest animal around, a wolverine!
In the afternoon we boarded a bus and headed to Denali for a two night stay at Princess Cruises Wilderness Lodge – (https://www.princesslodges.com/princess-alaska-lodges/denali-lodge/).
The views along the way and at the lodge are just majestic. Alaska is mainly a wilderness. This was not Bay County, Michigan.
On day 3 we take a trip into the Denali park. Spoiler alert, we do not get to see Mount Denali (aka Mount McKinley) because of the clouds.
