Our Denali National Park Bus Trip

On one of our days in Denali National Park, we took an 8 hour bus trip to the end of the road to Kantishna. The National Park Service puts on a wonderful trip that is both entertaining and educational. If you ever have a chance I highly recommend that you take it to the end of the road.

This is Doug, he made our trip very enjoyable

Just one of many views

Dall Sheep

Mountains, mountains everywhere

More mountains

And then some more. The views just took your breath away.

Me on the side of the road

Did I tell you about the animals? Here’s a grizzly bear. You can tell it’s a grizzly because of the hump behind the head.

This is Fannie Quiggly’s house at the end of the road. This woman lived out here all by herself. She had a hole in the back yard where she kept food frozen. In the winter she was stuck out here unless someone came out with a dog sled.


Moose on the way back

Another moose. I really loved these animals they look so peaceful and powerful at the same time, and believe me, you don’t want to mess with them.

So that was our day on the Kantishna bus trip. I only showed you a few of the pictures we took that day. Next time we are off to the Dalton Highway and the Arctic Circle.

Travel Tip:

Whenever you travel it is always a good idea to keep a first aid kit on hand just in case. Make sure to include blankets, flashlights, and warm clothing. Pack it all inside a back pack along with snack bars and water.
