Since it is 11:00am on the 6th, and I just posted our blog for the 4th of July, I guess it is time to write about the 5th.
We drove along the Parks Highway (AK 3) north to Healy AK. Healy is about 7 miles north of the entrance to Denali National Park. Along the way, we did get a glimpse of the top of the mountain named Denali by the First Nation, and Mt. McKinley by those in the lower 48 states (or “outside” by Alaskans). But, by the time we arrived at the pull-off view points, it was once again hiding behind the clouds.
We drove through part of Denali National Park on the way to Healy, and stopped to take a picture of the entrance sign.
After social hour, we all attended the Alaska Cabin Night for a delicious dinner of salmon, BBQ ribs, and fixin’s. Our wait staff and entertainment met us at the door. During dinner, one played the piano, and after dinner they all provided music and story telling about Alaskan life and especially about Annie Quigley. Annie moved to Alaska in the early part of the 20th century where she hunted, mined for gold, mined miners, sold food, etc.
Finally, here are a three pictures depicting satisfaction from the 4th of July breakfast put on by Dennis.
Type at you later.
