Look Both Ways Before Crossing the Road

We got going somewhat early this morning and packed things up and drove a short ways down the road to K2 Aviation for our scheduled flightseeing tour over Mount McKinley/Denali.  When we arrived there, we were informed the mountain had clouds surrounding it and offered another flight over Knik Glacier.  Since we were more interested in McKinley, we declined the offer and got a refund and continued on our way south.

Look both ways before crossing the road.  That’s something my parents always told me and Ken’s parents always told him.  This young moose obviously did not get the same warning from her parents.  Thankfully for us (and her), we saw her before she ran across the road and had time to slow down to avoid hitting her.  This happened shortly after leaving the campground this morning.




Other than the moose crossing, it was an uneventful day.  We arrived at the Palmer Elks lodge located in Wasilla and headed into town to pick up a few groceries and returned for the remainder of the day.  Tomorrow we will be driving back to Ian and Jennifer’s house to spend the night prior to our Cummins appointment on Monday morning.
