Went there but police had the road blocked Word is that 2 dead people were found at a camp site. First I heard was order suicide but later (Sun AM) heard that troopers sent a search team up the road. Decided to break camp and leave Sunday afternoon. One the way back to Fbks we saw 12 fast moving police vehicles going out and/or toward Denali HWY.

I was there. Arrived at camp at 12 pm Friday. Spent the night by myself at our camp spot. Saturday was going out for a ride across the river and that's when the troopers stopped me to ask me some questions. Said something had gone on at a pop up camper. Went on my ride at around 8:30 am and came back at around 1:45 pm and they had the road taped off and wouldn't let me back up to the camp. I sat there until 7:30 pm before they would let me go back up. I decided to pack up and head home seeing no one else was showing up. As of Saturday night they hadn't found the body of the man and wowom. All I got out of them was that there was a lot of blood at his camper. His truck and wheeler was at the old post office.

Guess we got lucky. Wasn't aware of the issue, (we were at the lodge (Alpine Ck) until we left Sun afternoon) and saw all the troopers heading down the Denali.

On another note, had a blast at Alpine Creek Lodge. Lots of fish in the lake a few miles south of the hwy. Catching 14 and 16.5" grayling all day long :)
