Be sure to go to the Visitors Center when you are in Denali National Park. There's a beautiful video that shows the area during the various seasons. Also, great exhibits of wildlife and interesting information about this amazing area.

Plan to take a little extra time here to see and absorb the multiple displays that are very educational. Also, there are movies and presentations by park rangers that are entertaining and educational. History of the park is fascinating.
