Alaska at Last!

We are finally back in civilization – a grocery store and Internet and we are in Alaska! It has only taken two months but we have finally made it.

We spent the last week in Kluane National Park at two different campgrounds. It was absolutely spectacular scenery. This is the view from our campsite at Congden Creek on Kluane Lake. Our first afternoon in camp, we sat and watched Dahl Sheep on the hillside.

This is the bear that was hanging out in our campground.

We hiked for three days (but of course the wildlife was in our campground and not in the wilderness.) The last hike – Sheep Creek was my favorite. This view was our reward for six miles and a 1400′ climb. You can just see the toe of a glacier in the distance.

We will be staying here in Tok for a couple of days to do laundry and stock up on supplies. I am planning to put up a couple more posts with pictures from our other hikes, so stay tuned.
