April In Denali
On the right is the view from the Mile 135 look out. That's the Chulitna River. On a clear day you can get one of the best views of the mountain from this southern viewpoint.

As you can see, it wasn't completely clear. But you can see the base of Denali and a little bit more in the veil of clouds, flirting.
A little further down the road after Honolulu Creek, you get to the plateau surrounded by these exquisite mountains.
We got here a little after 4pm yesterday and drove to the Savage River bridge where we had dinner. Just a ribbon of water flowing through the ice. And it was windy.
Not much wildlife. Some ravens, seagulls, and a squirrel.
It's sunny and blue this morning and we're hoping to get a better view of Denali today before the clouds come in. Just stopping at the visitors center to borrow some wifi. (It was shut off when we came back to Riley Creek campground about 8:30 last night.
