Denali Park

Denali Park 2015

Denali Park is open to drive in 32 miles until the buses start moving around May 15. We have been taking full advantage of it. It is beautiful right now but nothing compares to what it looks like in the summer and fall. I am just grateful for every moment spent in that park.

The ptarmigan are changing colors right now and it is mating season. They sit and cackle and one another. It is quite entertaining.

Jr. Iditarod

HF0A0426 The Junior Iditarod was moved to Cantwell this year because of lack of snow in other parts of the state.  It was fun to see the puppies and their young owners.  There is something so inspiring about young teens so devoted to animals and a sport that requires so much of them.HF0A0433 HF0A0458 This baby just melted my heart.  7 weeks old and the cutest little hat!HF0A0466 HF0A0477It was Mister C’s birthday and he celebrated it at the Junior Iditarod.   HF0A0508 HF0A0511 HF0A0568 We met Newton Marshall the Jamaican Dog Sledder.  He has ran the Iditarod four times previously but not this year.  Conditions have not been that great.HF0A0572 HF0A0576 HF0A0582
