We faced every kind of weather except snow today. Sun, hot, rain, cold.

Went back to Denali for a short drive (private vehicles are pretty well banned from the park) and a quick hike. Hot and sunny.

Drove to Trapper Creek through rain and we encountered the brightest rainbow I’ve ever seen. Added bonus: it was accompanied by a full double. Then we found some interesting flora, so broke out the macro lens.

Here’s what we saw today:

Hiked up the Savage River and found some nice reflections in the braided stream. It cried for black-and-white.

And then rain and cold, but we were rewarded by this:

Of course, the rain leaves other clues that it was in the area:

That’s enough for now.
