The quiet of the Maclaren Valley settles in. A bit of snow on the ground here at the Lodge and more on the Maclaren Summit (about 8 inches or so). It will not be long now that there will be enough snow to close the highway and then the winter fun begins!
Today is the first day of the re-opening of caribou season, with only approximately 300 permits to be filled, this should go quickly. Already there have been several vehicles on the Denali Highway, out for the last hunt of the season.
