We were surprised and excited to wake up to nearly clear skies and beautiful views of Mt. McKinley. We consider ourselves very fortunate as only 30% of those visiting Mt. McKinley get to see an unobstructed view of this magnificent sight and the tallest peak in North America. Needless to say, I took a few hundred photos of this spectacle and am sharing of few of them here for you to enjoy. I have 5 more galleries containing photos of the Alaskan landscape and glaciers in Glacier Bay and College Fjord if you would like to see more. You can view the additional photos on my web site at: http://www.budellison.com/Alaska-Denali-National-Park. Hope you enjoy the photos. Click on any photo to view a larger image.
