Adventure in Alaska

We arranged a Park Servie shuttle of our bikes into Wonder Lake in Denali Park for a ride out. It's a 90 mile trip well worth the time. We spotted wildlife all along the way into Wonder Lake. They allow 2 bikes inside the shuttle bus. We made reservations 9 months in advance.

We rode 50+ miles the first day to one of two campgrounds. There are 3 passes to negotiate the first day. They all get your attention when hauling a load. We just beat the rain while setting up the tent. It poured all night and we rode the second day in rain and mud. A shower at the Park entry awaits!

Denali was out in full force

Park road is a beautiful but challenging ride.
