Denali (aka Mt. McKinley) as Most Tourists See It

We spent a few days this weekend at Byers Lake Campground with some other returned Peace Corps volunteers from Anchorage and Fairbanks.  I'll break this up into a couple of posts.  This one will be short and sweet.

Here's the viewpoint at mile 135 where, on a clear day, you have the best view of Denali from the highway.  But the mountain makes its own weather and most tourists never see much or anything of the mountain.  I always wanted to make a post card for tourists who didn't get to see the mountain.  It might look something like this one below. 

The sign shows the Alaska Range's highest peaks, and the real thing is dressed in clouds.

  1. Ah, we're going to be at Kantishna for 3 days in August. Praying for clear weather, we are.
