DENALI NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVEMount McKinley
is North America's highest peak. At 20.320 feet
(6,194 meters) above sea level, the mountain looms over the surrounding tundra, home to Alaska's "Big Five"
of grizzly bears, caribou, moss, Dall sheep, and wolves
There is only one road into the six million acres of wild land in Denali National Park and Preserve
For the best Denali experience, stay at Camp Denali or North face Lodge
not far from prime photo locations at Wonder Lake.
One of the best ways to photograph the mountain is from the air during a "doors off"
flight with an experienced Alaska bush pilot. Kantishna Air Taxi
is the only company that offers flight seeing from the closest airstrip to the mountain at the end of the 92-mile long park road.
