After a wonderful night camping, I went on another hike through quaking aspens.

This time I joined in on a Ranger led hike to Horseshoe Lake

Kate Ballentyne was our guide and provided much information about the plant life.  One of her stops was by a rosehip bush and I had my first fresh sample of some.

This contrail poses two possibilities; either they forgot the coffee or Marcia's hair ribbon!

After my rafting in a glacier fed stream, I drove back into the park to see the alpenglow on Mount Denali.

The sun has set on the park.
