Denali (Finally) and Glaciers...

We awoke with hope that the illusive mountain peak would peek. We were not disappointed.




After getting the view we had hoped for , we returned to Talkeetna's Roadhouse for pancakes made with a 1902 sourdough starter. Yum, right? ABSOLUTELY.
We then decided to take a side trip, from Anchorage, to have the Cook Inlet as our view.
While we never did see a Beluga whale, it was exciting to drive along the road, with the promise of maybe seeing them on the horizon.

Portage Valley may be one of the most popular visitor destinations in Alaska due to its extensive and spectacular collection of glaciers. And we were there, wow.

We dry camped along this peaceful lake, awaiting tomorrow's explore of this picturesque valley.

Steve was "kissed" by a moose and you were "kissing" a Beluga whale. Interesting :) That would have been super cool if you had seen a whale. The Beluga's were always one of my favorite things to see at Sea World. Your "overflowing the plate" pancake looked yummy, as did the other plate. I do love breakfast food. And congrats on finally seeing the top of Denali. It seems about as elusive as Mount Waialeale in Kauai. But we were rewarded with its peak a couple of days.

What a breathtaking picture of Denali. That was not part of our short Alaska trip but hope to see it one day!
