The savage river trail is a 2mile loop in Denali, with many many wildflowers along the way. We got to meet some of the 'locals' as well, wh0, as the park ranger pointed out, can be a lot more interesting than the big wildlife of Denali.
Which of these did we see? The dal sheep and the ptarmigan we chanced upon while taking the bus through Denali. The hoary marmot and the artic ground squirel were right there by our path along the savage river trail.
The elegant orange wall lichen was growing in many places, slowly and quietly breaking down the rocks.
There were flowers eveywhere, so many different types, that they warrant a separate post.
