$25.68: Denali Outdoor Center, Healy, Alaska
It’s always best to start the day right with a little coffee from a caboose.
There were no spots available within the Riley Creek campground in Denali, but they recommended Denali Outdoor Center ten miles back up the road. $12 per person, per night, no hook-ups, but flush toilets and hot showers. And the view ain’t shabby, neither.
In fact, let’s use the drone (since we’re not in a national park now) to pan back and see the whole picture.
From here, we went back to Denali to see the sled-dogs.
On the bus from the visitor center to the dogs, we were surrounded by Paula Dean look- and sound-alikes. One of them (more sound-, than look-alike), and her husband, thought the races needed to be spiced up with a little Jack Daniels. Shhh – it’s our little secret.
I guess it was 4pm: happy hour at the race track.
Glenn’s technique is much better than mine.

What an adventure!
Fantastic report, guys! Picture of Steward is adorable. Now what did Huggy think of those beasts???
Looks like a couple of novice “mushers” to me…with one of them looking for his sled dogs in the distance. 🙂 The vistas continue to be spectacular, especially from the drone.
Another wonderful post! Didn’t realize that you would be able to experience dog sleds in the summer.
Great pictures. Thank you!
