Denali is awesome! I'm back in town for a brief supply trip after spending just three days at the lodge, and I already want to go back! At first, the solitude was a little disturbing. Luckily, there is one other girl there already and she is very rad and we've been exploring the area together. I've been meeting a lot of new people and they are all very relaxed and fun. My job looks like it will be pretty easy, and I've been asked if I would like to take on extra hours working as a baker in the kitchen!! Sweet!
Yesterday morning I saw a black bear ambling around while I ate my breakfast on the porch outside of my bedroom. I would have snapped a photo but he/she was ambling pretty quickly.
