    Default Mystery amphib Cub on Denali Highway.

    We drove past a beautiful yellow w/black accents Cub on the Denali Highway yesterday parked at the entrance to the Brushkana campground. Odd place to see a plane, much less an amphib float equiped Cub.

    Unfortunately we weren't in a position to stop and take pictures, but I'm wondering if anyone knows the story?

    Ha!



    Spoke to him for about ten seconds. Saturday night the weather closed down both ends of the highway so they decided to camp instead of circling all night

    Planes land on the highway all the time. I've landed at MacLaren River Lodge and taxied into the parking lot. That being said, it was quite the upslope to land on there at Brushkana, wasn't it!?!

    I hope you waved to me as you drove past!

    LOL... We were the ones in the retired Denali N.P. tour bus and the silver Silverado crew cab P/u towing a trailer full of wheelers and one dirt bike. I was hauling butt down the hill and did a double take.. definately a sloped landing if either way.
