Alaska Adventure-Day 12 & 13 – Denali

Our Wings Tour officially ended yesterday morning n Anchorage.  Jim and I had an enjoyable time, met some great people and birded to our hearts content.

Yesterday morning we met my wife, Linda, Jim’s fiance Alison and our brother Tom and his wife, Gail, and drove to Denali National Park.  I added Alder Flycatcher to my year-list.  Today was an 11 hour bus ride into the park to Wonder Lake. Highlights included N. Goshawk and a pair of Gyrfalcons as well as one Grizzly Bear. Here are a few highlights.
