While I’m not that much of a train guy (I like them ok, but not a devotee), I do like machines and parts. So, here’s your extreme closeup of the train.

We took the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage to Denali and then back. A nice ride. We saw moose and eagles and even salmon in the rivers below from the train.  Passes through Wasilla.  Didn’t see her.

They say that when the flowers on the fireweed get to the top, winter is just 6 weeks away.

The sun really does stay up late here in the summer. This is a shot of Denali just before midnight. From across the little kettle lake at Camp Denali. If you get a chance to stay there, you will like it.

Here’s another shot, from just a little earlier in the evening. The mountain is glowing.

Ok, not a great shot, but a fun day. Turns out that in Denali, the bears like to use the road too. What you don’t see in this shot is that backed up behind the bear are four busses. And the bear was taking his time. Walk a little. Stop and eat a little. Walk a little more. Great show for us — we were right there in front. For the people stuck behind the other busses? It was probably a long 30+ minutes for them.

On the park road in Denali. Turns out the bears use the road too. And here’s one headed our way. Just out of the frame behind the bear are 4 busses waiting for the bear to move. And it was moving. And stopping to snack on roadside plants. And moving a little. We were on our way back from a hike and were enjoying it. The people in the back busses, maybe not so much.
