Nature and I took the hostel shuttle to the Park to catch the 9 am shuttle through the park. Unfortunately, everything was booked and we had to take the 10 am shuttle to the Eielson Visitor Center. It was an 8 hr bus ride and we saw grizzly bears, caribou, moose and eagles. Great trip but did not see Denali (Mount Whitney). Denali is only visible about 30% of the time so not too disappointed. Considering a summit airplane flight which is expensive but supposedly you can see climbers attempting to summit Denali. Will hope weather is up for it. Nice park but only has 92 miles of accessible road. Hostel is 14 miles outside the park but has a free shuttle to the park and back.
