Yet; it was an adventure of a lifetime, and I would gladly attempt to summit it again; if my health permitted! Our expedition started by flying from Talkeetna, AK.; in a Cessna 180 with skies, and landing... More

My wife, kids, and I rented an RV in Anchorage and spent two weeks travel around Alaska. This is a great way to see the wilderness. One of our stops was a lookout viewing area for Mount McKinley.

we were among the 30% who saw McKinley on a clear day. It is such a majestic sight and drawfs the 12 and 13 thousand feet mountains surrounding it. A must see in Alaska if the weather cooperates

We got really lucky and saw Denali on the train heading to Denali, in the Denali NP on the bus and again at Talkeetna as we took the bus back to Anchorage. This is one impressive mountain. Just hope for a blue sky day to actually see it.

I'm one of the 30 percenters who were able to see the entire mountain - for 3 days straight. It's so big that you'd think you were able to walk to McKinley. However, our guide said it was still over 50 miles away.

We were able to see Mt. McKinley all day. They told us that only 5% of the visitors each summer get to see Mt. McKinley because of fog, clouds etc. We lucked out and had blue skies all day!

Loved the pure beauty, the surrounding glaciers, mountain ranges and heaps of snow. Nothing to dislike unless you do not like snow or beauty.
