Four days in the Olympics, Grand Valley, Lake Lillian Valley, beautiful weather, great country, and watched the eclipse overlooking Lake Gladys in Grand Valley. Nobody around for miles. Brilliant sun. It did not get much darker, but it got COLD. Very cold. The birds stopped singing also.
Now, August 28, in Alaska, Denali National Park, staying at Denali Education Center before a five day backpacking trip around the Toklat River in the Park. Gonna be colder, up here, and different, but stunning also. Plan is to come out of the back country by Labor Day weekend for the 100th anniversary celebration of the Park for employees and former employees….
Love these National Parks….
