A long day of travel and time adjustments on Saturday left us feeling rather exhausted despite all the exhiloration from this amazing week. We opted to unpack, do laundry and get a good nights sleep before completing and sharing our final leg of the journey.
Driving 4 hours back up to Talkeetna to get a majestic view of Mt Denali in all of her glory (it was sunny and clear up there).
In the grand scheme of things, our time was short but we feel blessed beyond measure to have had this opportunity of a lifetime. We made the most of every minute and would love to return someday to continue discovering the trails and rivers and glaciers that time didn’t permit us to explore this time around. Although we did see quite a bit of wildlife, the good stuff requires more time for going much deeper into the National Parks and wilderness.
As we made our way back to the airport we spent our final hours in the city of Anchorage. That is where we discovered a bike trail that beckons us back. Time didn’t permit us to bike it, but we did walk a piece of it and got a few photos. http://anchoragecoastaltrail.com/
We shared one last meal together at The 49th State Brewing Company, overlooking this great city from rooftop seating….brrrr, the sun was shining but a chill was in the air.
