“Saw it for the second time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

My husband and I were fortunate enough to see the mountain back in 1994 when we visited and again this July as we traveled with our teenagers for their first visit to Alaska. Could actually visualize it as we traveled to Anchorage from Seward and then on toward Talkeetna where we stayed that first night. Assumed that would be it but the next day it was clear again! We got some great pictures and can not believe that out of two - two day trips to the area we were in that 30% to see the mountain! Gorgeous!

“A wonderland of mountains, valleys and unspoiled wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

A daytrip in Denali National Park is amazing. Make sure you get well past the visitor's center (17 miles in). Get at least 50 miles in. We saw grizzly bear, moose, caribou and the state bird, ptarmigan, and, one of the few to see Denali. I can't tell you how nice it is to see these animals in their natural environment and not behind bars!

“Best viewing is from Talkeetna”

Beautiful site when it is clear. Understand only one in thirty people ever get to see it, so do not be disappointed if you do not get to see it. Buy a postcard.
