Noatak River, Alaska August 2015

From Nelson Walker Lake to Kotzebue

August 1, 2015

Breakfast with blueberries and a short stop at Denali National park filled out the morning. As I was getting out of the van at the Park I noticed a Tyrannosaurus Rex lying on the ground. Picking it up, I realized that it would make a great mascot for the trip.  Now on to Fairbanks and last minute errands. We checked into Wright Air and gave them the hazardous items, bear spray and fuel. Weather looks good for the flight to Bettles in the morning. Stopped at Ah, Rose Marie Bed and Breakfast for a short visit with the owner, 80 year old John Davis. Dinner was with Oscar and Martin at the Chena Pump House and then an overnight stay with Darren and Sue.
