DENALI NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE, ALASKA

Autumn at Camp Denali

Every other year I'm honored to be the Photographer-in-Residence at Camp Denali, located more than 90-miles from the entrance to DenalI National Park and Preserve.

When we arrived the last week of August the tundra was still green with only hints of color. Less than a week later the colors were blazing, from the blueberry bushes to red bear berry.

Each day the snow level dropped until a dusting of snow came to the mountain passes.

It was a magical week complete with glimpses of North America's tallest mountain, Denali or the "high one."
