Barren Ground Caribou
We saw many caribous at Denali, but this female, photographed from the bus during the ride out of the park, was definitely the closest and most photogenic. The coat is patchy because it was molting. After Denali, we rode on the scenic Alaska Railroad for a few hours to the village of Talkeetna where Steve and Doug met us with the vans. After bumming around Talkeetna for a while and having a so-so dinner, we drove back to Anchorage, arriving around 10:00 PM.
