Disappearing Lake: Natures Magic in Denali National Park by Debbie S. MillerThis story is about a vernal lake that is located in Denali National Park. What a great way for children to see and hear how runoff from melting snow can turn a meadow into a lake creating a temporary water system, and then see it gradually disappear as the water seeps into the ground and evaporates. Turning once again, into a meadow. The illustrations are beautifully painted the animals and scenery are very realistic. Children will love the pictures! I love how the author put “Field Notes” at the back of the book giving further explanation about each animal, and insect that visit the vernal lake.
Instructional uses for Disappearing Lake:
1. Use this book to teach about vernal water systems.
2. Vocabulary: The field notes in the back of the book will help with this.
3. Have a discussion about the various animals and insects that are seen around or in the lake. Compare with vernal lakes or ponds around here to see if the same animals and insects visit both. Add to science journal explaining the similarities or differences.
Triple Lakes Trail
I brought good hiking shoes, a sweater, waterproof jacket, hat, sunglasses, backpack for food and water, water filter and camera. I have lived in Denali for four summers now and this is the first time I have done this hike in full. It is just over 9 miles in one direction but overall not a very strenuous hike. If you really wanted you could do this hike down and back again but it would be over 18 miles making it a very long tiring day. I would suggest doing it one way and then getting a ride or having a friend pick you up at the opposite end. Since Triple Lakes is not a loop trail, there are two ways to hike it.

Seeing Wonder Lake in the middle of the tundra of Denali was a beautiful surprise. It was so peaceful. After a long bus ride we arrived at Wonder Lake. It was a very clear day, the lake and nearby mountains were beautiful. The lake is beautiful, but it is a long bus ride. When we arrived the lake was empty no loons, no ducks.

My family 2xA, 2xC hiked this spectacular trail in July It's a long walk so you have to be This would have been an excellent hike if the weather had cooperated for the entire hike. There is It's a long walk so you have to be prepared but if you are then it's a great hike. Plenty to see on the trail - spectacular views and plenty of evidence of wildlife, There is some vertical change getting from the upper trail down to each of the lakes, but you can stay on the upper trail and still see the lakes
