Annual Backpacking Adventure

Deb, Liz and Roland have packed up and hit the road for Roland's annual Alaska visit. He loves backpacking here so much, he's become a fixture in Talkeetna. They are heading to Denali State Park where they will get up on Kesugi Ridge and enjoy the amazing flora and fauna of that area. They'll be in alpine tundra and get to pick blueberries! It's possible to see wildlife there, such as caribou, wolves, marmot, fox and bear. They plan to be back on Friday, I don't know if we'll have any reports from them during the week.
The weather has been alternating between really nice and really rainy; presently it's mostly cloudy with isolated showers. The sun has been peeking through, so we're hoping they'll get some good views on their hikes.
Have fun Roland!
