This is the lodge where the race ended. Dakota and I spent about 3 hours just walking around outside. It was cloudy but nice and cool.
Everyone left their bikes outside after the race. It was cool to see rows of bikes all lying down the same way. I can't believe how many people enter and finish this race.
This was just a fun art project made out of metal displayed out on the back deck of the lodge. It looked Dakota-size to me. Too bad I didn't have another set of arms to hold him on and take a picture at the same time.
Inside the lodge was a gift shop and Mr. Moose welcoming all to come inside. Dakota and Mr. Moose hit it off right away.
You can't tell from the picture because it was cloudy, but the back deck had a beautiful view of Mt Denali and other smaller peaks. Like they say, the picture just does not do it justice. It was a great shot of the little one looking out towards the mountain range.
Later we came back to show Daddy how much fun the playground was.
