Discovering Denali part 2

28 Jul

We are really enjoying our “vacation” here in Denali! Brandon and I explored, what the locals call, the Canyon.

We ate delicious ice cream from Denali Glacier Scoops. Yum! We also ate pizza at Prospector’s Pizza. I tried Blue Zinfandel made in Homer, Alaska. The wine is made from Alaska blueberries. It was absolutely delicious! I will definitely be purchasing a bottle when I go to Fairbanks on Monday! šŸ™‚

Brandon & I also ventured into Denali National Forest.

We went to the visitor center in the park. It was really neat. – Very informative.

Brandon had an interview at Princess Lodge in Denali yesterday. It went very well. He should hear something back at the beginning of next week. The position was for a maintenance manager. It could possibly be a job that is year-round rather than seasonal.

Last night Mom & Dad ordered pizza from Totem Inn and they had some friends over to watch the openings for the Olympics. So Brandon & I ended up having pizza twice yesterday. But that was okay with us! We are major pizza lovers!! šŸ™‚

Today we went to Denali National Park again but this time EVERYBODY went. (Mom, Dad, 3 sisters, Meme, Brandon, & myself) We went to the Sled dog kennels. It was so cool!!

They had around 30 sled dogs at this facility. Today the temperature was around 75Ā° and the dogs were dying hot! Lol. They hate hot weather and do better in much colder temperatures. (32Ā°) Some time this winter they have an event where we can go see the sled dogs in action. (and no I’m not talking about the iditarod.)

Tomorrow we are going to attend church with Mom & Dad. (I’m really going to miss going to OneLife!!) Monday our plan is to go to Fairbanks. We need to go to the grocery. But I will blog again next week.

Oh yea & I have yet to see a moose!! But I’ve seen plenty of moose poop! I’m convinced that moose don’t really live here. Lol.

Love to all!!
