Denali Video - April 11, 2016

Denali National Park is now open 30mi to Teklanika. From there we ride out to Polychrome. No critters seen this trip but reasonably good sceneryhttps://www.facebook.com/bud.kuenzli...type=2&theater

Very nice. I love the majestic scenery.
I never saw ptarmigans with color on them when I worked in NWT. They were all white.

That would explain it. I've never been north of 60 in the summer. Kinda did that backwards, didn't I?

Maybe on my road bike doing downhill on a steep grade but on the flats I have a hard time outrunning little girls on three wheel pink bikes . Grizzlies can run up to 40mph. The one time I was charged the bear stopped 5 feet in front of me and it was so fast and I was so shocked I had no time to even react.They are unbelievably fast. Once in Denali a sow and cub came out of the brush onto the road as we were going downhill. My wife had to brake so hard it pulled her rear wheel (horizontal dropouts) out of place. They were 20 feet in front of us. Wayyyy too close. Denali is an amazing place.
