By Motorcoach Through the Yukon & Alaska

At 6:20 we boarded the Tundra Wilderness Tour bus, which picked us up at the Denali Bluffs. This shot, taken at 8:13 a.m., shows the video monitors which are new this year. The driver has a video camera with a huge zoom lens (he told me 100x) that he uses to pick out distant wildlife that passengers are having a hard time finding or want a better look at. Also in these new busses are comfortable fabric-covered bucket seats instead of the vinyl bench seats that have been standard. Between them, these improvements make a huge difference in the trip.
