Back from Alaska
I returned to Nashville after 6 days in Alaska. Denali National Park and Mt. McKinley were the best. We drove 63 miles into the park and were there 9 hours. We saw wildlife: grizzlies, moose, wolves, caribou and Dall sheep. I ate caribou. I rode the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage to Denali. It was a 7 hour ride and quite scenic. We crossed rivers created by glacial water. Alaska is a big place! I learned there are no snakes. It was 50 degrees in the day and 30 degrees at night. I came back to Anchorage for my last day and did the town. I went to the Museum of History and Art. There were exhibits about Alaskan birds and native culture .
