We were one of the 30% of visitors who actually got to see Mt. MckInnley on a clear day...from the Eilson visitor center in Denali National Park....absolutely breath-taking!

We saw it!!! First on a clear day traveling on the Mckinley Express and again on the tundra tour. Words cannot describe it!

We saw the mountain...very nice but not the Tetons. I suspect that unless you are into serious backcountry backpacking or part of the geriatric crowd, you will feel like I do. Why bother with Deniali, which has few established hiking trails, you can only access by shuttle bus, and the park staff speak as if everyone were in kindergarten or had never been in a national park before when you could go to Yellowstone and the Tetons or Glacier, see excellent wildlife, do fabulous hikes, and not have to deal with the cruise crowds? Maybe someday I will come back and do some serious backcountry hiking. But, for a person interested in long day hikes, wildlife, great views, and getting away from crowds of people, I will take Yellowstone and the Tetons or Glacier or the North cascades any day. Unless you have time for serious backcountry, Denali is Disney World, or perhaps Animal Kingdom. Five stars if you are city folk. 5 stars if you are John Muir with some serious time available. 3 stars otherwise. There are many far better national parks. And, it would be nice if the rangers and naturalists would not act as if everyone were in kindergarten and up the level a bit. This is something the park naturalist and head if park need to work on.

We stayed at the McKinley Princess Lodge. We put our name on the list to be called any time if the mountian revealed it self. We got our call at 4 a.m. and through on our clothes and ran out to see this amazing mountian. We just stood and stared until it finally covered itself in clouds again and disappeared. It was the best wake up call I have ever had.

Saw the mountain from the highway viewpoint. Impressive sight, 20,000+ feet high. If you flew over it, views might be better.
