Denali, Mt. McKinley, Denali National Park, Alaska.

hey Folks,

What an awesome day. A walk down along the coastal trail, Denali, or Mt. McKinley in full view is a treat. Absolutely gorgeous. There’s probably not too many towns in the world you can walk along the beach and be looking at a 20 000′ tall mountain. Here’s a picture in honor of ‘the mountain’ – ain’t it something!

    Love it!! I was also going back through some of your earlier photos, especially around Bremner Mines & Tebay Lakes & they are just spectacular photos ranging from wildflowers which were awesome to mountain ranges & valleys which were awe inspiring. I think that & Denali are two of the most beautiful wilderness areas I’ve ever seen. I hope that they keep Denali free of commercialization. The wildlife in Alaska is intoxicating. I hope it stays free.Drilling in ANWR is just the beginnining. After that it’s only a matter of time before the wilderness & beauty ends.

    Hey Richard

    Thanks for the comment. It’s not so much desert like terrain, it’s just tundra, up above treeline. Lots of low brush, mostly willow and dwarf birch, and then the higher peaks before Denali are barren, as they’re too steep and high for much of anything to grow on. You’re seeing what are called Murie’s Plains, or Plains of Murie, after Adolf Murie, the biologist who lived for a few years in the park studying wolves. his book “The Wolves of Denali” is the bible on the subject.
