A few views from Denali National Park and Preserve.
Denali Rangers still use sled dogs for patrols in the park during winter. Some real mean, tough dogs, right?
These dogs were all laid back and relaxed until the handlers started to harness them up. They go from snoozing away
to a total frenzy at the drop of a hat. All of them were jumping and barking with a "Pick Me, Pick Me" attitude. Notice the
upper left picture of this set. This one almost jumps to the top of a 7 foot fence.
The road on the Turnagain Arm and on to the Kenai Peninsula. Our site on Resurrection Bay at Seward.
"Combat fishing" for salmon on the Kenai River.
Exit Glacier near Seward, Ak. This glacier and others on this peninsula are fed by the Harding Ice Field. This ice field
covers around 1000 square miles and feeds about 40 different glaciers. It is thought to be almost a mile thick in some
Bear Glacier, Kenai Fjords National Park.
Approaching Holgate Glacier. Notice the ship at the base of the glacier.
A few closer looks at the glacier. Below are some photos as it was calving.
Away from the ice and back toward the bay. If you ever have the chance, take a Kenai Fjords National Park wildlife and
