Denali! The High One! from Denali Park Road
Pam, our driver, advised us that there was not more than a one in ten chance of seeing the mountain clear at this time of year. But she said "If it's clear, you should see it over this next ridge, and I expect a lot of oo's and ah's" The reaction at the top of the ridge was more like a collective gasp as the mountain stood gleaming in the sun. It helps to appreciate how high the mountain is to realize that the mountains which seem dwarfed in the foreground are over 10,000 feet! August 26,1991.
