Around 7 a.m. our friend saw a grizzly bear in the campground right by our jeep. What a surprise! The security car chased it into the woods.
Drove Skilak Road to see more wildlife. There were only a few turnouts with views of the lake and mountains, and the rest was a tree-lined, dusty road with more traffic than we expected. Constant dust! Only went half way and turned around. Sure wasn't the scenic wildlife drive we read about!
Made clam chowder using "Best Ever" recipe from Brenda at Scenic View; added leftover fish; turned out pretty good for my first attempt at this!
Finally a campground that allowed RV washing; took an entire morning to get all the dirt off.
