Bearjam

More of the bear that wandered up to our bus. Denali National Park has only a single road which only the tan-coloured public transport buses seen in the last photo are allowed on. It was a great system actually; an 8 hour round trip, but the driver would stop for wildlife, making it feel a bit like a safari. At any point along the road you can leave the bus and go for a hike, then when you're done go back to the road and flag down another one! Fortunately this bear didn't follow us on our hike.

A little too close to the grizzly...

When you can clearly see a grizzly bears' claws, you know you're a little too close...

Moose and mooselet

More Mount McKinley Moments...

Denali mountain

This is Denali mountain/ Mount McKinley. Standing at 20,320ft (6.2km), this is the largest mountain in North America. From base to summit, it's the highest in the world at over 18,000ft (5.5km), compared to Everest with 12,000ft (3.7km). It's so large that it creates its own localized weather, and spends 95% of the time hidden behind rainclouds.

And then the sun came out...
