At the end of every season, the NPS allows 400 private vehicles for each of four days to drive the 92 mile Park Rd. This year over 10,000 people entered "the lottery" and I was fortunate enough to be able to drive the road on three of the four days!

This long weekend trip over the July 4th holiday weekend was wonderful, in spite of what was rather cool and wet weather.

Alaska's Denali National Park is the most accessible true wilderness in the United States. As large as the state of Massachusetts, it boasts the highest mountain in North America. An even greater attraction to many visitors is the abundant wildlife: grizzly, moose, caribou, dall sheep, wolves, and more.

Denali National Park is known for being the home of Mt. McKinley, the highest mountain in North America. But the park is just more than just one mountain. The park and surrounding area offer great opportunities for hiking, camping, seeing wildlife, rafting, and experiencing the beauty of this majestic place.

Denali, the “High One”, North America’s highest peak, formerly known as Mount McKinley. On an exceptionally clear day, Denali visibly beckons from Anchorage. By plane or by rail are good ways to go, but my friends and I went by highway.

Denali stands alone. Our visit was magical, from a rare full view of the mountain on the drive up to brilliant yellows and pastel hues signaling the end of summer. This mountain is a unique experience unlike any other national park we have visited.

What is the shyest mountain? Mt. McKinley. It likes to hide its face.
