We spent three days at Riley Creek Campground in Denali National Park. We'd made reservations initially with the idea that we would board Turk for a day while we did the bus tour to the Eielson Visitor Center, but with Turk slowly recovering from his injuries, it made more sense to just relax in the campground so we didn't see anything of the Park other than the two entrance signs.

We've been extremely fortunate to experience very good weather throughout our trip but we were reminded that it can and does rain here during the summer. The three days at the park were grey and drippy, but it's much nicer to hear the rain on a molded fiberglass trailer than it is on a tent.

We were very pleased to have a chance to meet Lynne, the author of the Casita in the Desert, Casita in the Mountains blog. They've had their own challenges with their Alaska trip.

Turk's incision, although not infected, continues to drain serum occasionally so I made a day trip back to Fairbanks for more supplies to keep him clean and dry. When you see his incision, it's pretty amazing he survived!
