Along the Nenana River


1453
I still have a good handful of posts that share from our August/September 2019 trip to Alaska. There’s no reason I shouldn’t have wrapped these up a lot sooner than 1.5 years later but I hope in the coming months I can get everything squared away. I think part of the problem is I really wish we could travel and get to Alaska again. There was so much to see and explore up there that even if we lived there it would take a lifetime to get to it all.

This will be the last post from along the Denali Highway, where we stopped alongside the Nenana River as it comes closer to the road and makes for easy exploration.

An ursine friend had been through, and this was the primary reason for stopping. Chris wanted to cast more prints if he could find them, and he did.

The fall coloring was spectacular here with the grasses and made a lovely area for Forest to play. Also, he was newly 5 years old and he looks so small compared to his nearly 6.5 years now.

There was plenty of rocks and other debris to search through along the riverbanks.

I loved exploring along the Denali Highway and would love to spend a few days camping and driving along the entire route. While you occasionally see another car or two, it is quite desolate like so much of Alaska.

    Beautiful colors! Forest really does look small there!

    The bird print casting is fabulous!

  3. We really need to get out to the Denali Highway more often. Believe it or not, I’ve only been on it three times! We intend to go skiing on it while it’s closed this winter, but again, we just haven’t.
