Photo Essay: Denali National Park

While Mount McKinley hid beneath a thick layer clouds during my visit to Denali National Park, I was still afforded amazing photographic opportunities.  I thought I would share some in this post.

Wildlife

Husky
Denali National Park still runs an active dogsled kennel. This husky stayed alert and calm even with the flow of tourists.
Dall Sheep
This was the senior ram in the herd of Dall Sheep.
Prancing Caribou
Drivers must share the park roads with the wildlife. This caribou took his time prancing to the other side.
Moose
In the spring moose are shedding their winter coats and have yet to get their antlers.

Environment
