Denali National Wildlife Refuge
I took this trip in August 2001 with a bunch of Danes (Kim Nielsen and friends):
From left to right: Luise (from Denmark), Poul (also from Denmark), Charlotte (Danish), Kim (looks like he's freezing, but he's also from Denmark) and David (again, from Denmark).
We drove to the entrance to Denali NWP (marked with a blue arrow on this map; Galbraith Lake and some other things are also marked in blue, but those are other stories) which is about 160 km (100 mi.) southwest of Fairbanks (Fairbanks itself is marked on the map with a strange, multi-colored jobber of my own design). We camped over night and caught one of the busses into the park in the morning; with few exceptions, the busses are the only vehicles allowed in the refuge. The bus runs the length of the access road that runs to the west from the entrance on the map. A lot of the pictures I took didn't come out, but here are some that did:
NOW FOR A QUICK WILDLIFE BREAK:
An emergency backup photo of the exact same wolf.
This is just your ordinary, everyday fox; pretty common in AK.
