July 28 Day 27, Wasilla, AK to Denali National Park

The recommended dump site H&H Café had gone out of business, but we stopped for diesel at Trapper Creek and their dump was only $5. We set a record for 5 days with no dump. I also had breakfast at Trapper Creek. Mt. McKinley is the highest mountain in North America and due to cloud cover is only visible 30-40% of the time in summer. We lucked out and had a good view twice this morning. Then it clouded over and we didn't see the mountain again. We checked in to the Denali Riverside $38 RV Park at noon and did a $21 laundry using their 3 machines. They have to use a diesel generator to provide power to the campground so the high prices are excusable. The site is high above the Nenana River. With laundry out of the way we drove to the park and registered for a $11 campsite at the park tomorrow night. We also signed up for a 6 hour bus ride into the park starting at 9:30AM. We toured the Visitor Center which is very impressive and new in 2005. The movie they show, Heartbeats of Denali was so good I bought the DVD.
