Quite an early start with the coach taking us to the Fairbanks Railroad Depot where we boarded the train to take us the four hours to Danali. Beautifully appointed Alaskan Rail Road Gold Class domed car. Recliner seats and complementary non-alcoholic beverages. There was also an open air vestibule at the end of the car where we could take unobstructed images, no glass but pesky trees whenever I pressed the shutter. Awesome landscape of trees and distant mountains.
The Princess Denali Lodge is spread over a wide area with groups of rooms housed in separate buildings. After our luggage found us we went off to lunch in the King Salmon dinning room. Hearty menu and great food. I've developed a nasty cough over the past day or so. In an attempt to nip that cold in the bud we ventured off to find some medication. There's no pharmacy in Danali and the recommended place to find something was the Sled Dog Liquor Store. Sounds unlikely but it worked. There was an impressive array of cold and cough medication.
Back in the room I took a good dose and promptly flaked out on the bed - woke up four hours later and declined to go to dinner. Jenny went of for dinner in King Salmon and I was fast asleep when she returned. She woke me up and dosed me again about 23:00 and next thing I know it is time to get up.

Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
