Denali Alaska

Pictures from Denali National Park. The road was closed for snow less than 1/2 way to the end. I am planning to go back later this summer and go all the way to the end. 

Perhaps the most over designed doors I have ever seen. One hundred and twelve bolts to hold a door together?
Are these supposed to be bear resistant? I think the latch will break...

Mt McKinley/Denali in the distance.

Corrie, Nick, Stephen at the end of the drivable road. 

Caribou in the Savage River.

It was a very cooperative Caribou and Corrie has an excellent zoom. (CG)

We got up at 5 am so we could see Denali at sunrise. Turns out that was about an hour early.
We made coffee while waiting for the sun to burn off the clouds.

Using an almost empty milk jug as coffee cup saves a step... 

This is why we got up early

  1. Awesome pics... if you feel a little weird sometimes, it's just me living vicariously.

  2. I'm glad you're enjoying the pictures Matt.

  3. Jealous.....looks like you picked the perfect time to travel. Glad to see you're having fun.....
