Week 4 Update

Monday: This is our week at Denali. We had to get up super early (6 am) so that we could be at the park before 7:30 am to be in line for our tour bus ride into the park (you can’t drive in past mile 17.) It was a cool, damp, and foggy morning. We […]

Week 3 Update

Monday: Week 1 of the trip brought a lot of excitement, stress, and anxiety. We started out on Monday morning leaving my uncle’s house in Minnesota on our way towards Rapid City, SD. First off, I guess I didn’t give the driving time on these pre-planned legs as much consideration as I should have – […]

Made it to Rushmore & Glacier

We made it to Rapid City on Monday and to Glacier on Friday. There is lots to tell, but no Wi-Fi. Maybe when we get to Dawson City I’ll get some detailed posts uploaded.
