Anchorage to Denali by train.

August 4

The train ride took approximately 8 hours and was quite scenic. We saw adt7moose along the way. I was quite surprised at how much civilization there was for the first 2/3rds of the trip. The four of us joined the 30% club, this club is reserved for those that actually see the adt3

summit of Mount McKinley called Mount Denali by locals. We saw it from the train along with the 2 others that are considered part of the family
