Day 12: Do You Smell a Pic-a-nic Booboo? (120 miles: Fairbanks to Denali National Park 26-Aug-13)

After getting the Dalton Highway cement-like-mud off our bikes by Dan the Man and his power washer, my new companion, Ofir, and I rode an easy 120 miles to Denali National Park. We arrived just in time to reserve a campsite and run to a park bus that left at 5pm for a 6hr tour – 3hrs in and 3hrs out the same way. It turned out to be a private tour as we were the only ones on the bus.

We were lucky to see 5 grizzley bears, including 2 cubs, and breathtaking views of the park and Mt. McKinley. We pitched our tents at 11:00pm and had a below freezing night. The cold was well worth it to see the bears.
