Alaska Honeymoon – Day 3

Day three included an 8 hour bus trip into the Denali Park, with the hopes of seeing some wildlife and Mount Denali.  It was a gloomy day and no sight of Mount Denali.

But we did see some wildlife, including a grizzly bear that wanted to cross the road that our bus was on.

The scenery was majestic and not exactly what I was expecting.  Almost all of the land in this area is tundra, which does not allow trees to grow tall because the ground is always frozen under the top soil.  I think a few more days stay here with some possible hikes would be worthwhile to see more.  But this was our one day here because tomorrow we board a train and truck on down to Whittier to board our cruise ship.  But here are a few other pictures of the landscape.  You may want to visit the national park web site to find much more information and much better pictures.
