Greetings from Denali National Park & Preserve

We have two beagles that we traveled with to Alaska. Because of their age and issues we could not leave them for any of the excursions in Denali when we were there. My husband suggested the dog sled demo. We took the bus out and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the dogs and the rangers and watching and learning about the work the dogs do. Later that same day we walked from the campground back to see the dogs again. It was a long walk but well worth it. We could talk more one on one and pet the dogs. When the next demo guests came we walked back with smiles on our faces. Please help preserve these experiences for others.

Sincerely,
Barbara Huljak
