This is a photo of Savage River, where we did our first hike in Denali. It was also the farthest (15 miles) you could drive a private vehicle into the park without a special permit (available through a lottery). We took the bus further into the park the next day. I recently heard that the road is now completely closed at mile 43 due to a landslide. This is not a new problem; it is actually a rock glacier which has been moving since the 1960’s. This summer, the rate of movement increased to 10 inches per day!
In the Gospel, we are told about the importance of building on solid ground. The parable is about a house, but it obviously applies to roads as well!
