Denali National Park is one of the most highly visited areas in Alaska. And it is so for a reason. The small Denali Park Road that weaves along a 90 mile route crosses rivers and mountain passes offering spectacular landscape views. Many come with hopes to see a grizzly bear, or other wildlife that populates the tundra. As a photographer, I love the varied landscapes in the Park. I don’t know how many times I’ve been there, but there always seems to be something new. On a recent trip on Saturday, the light and clouds that poured over the Savage River was dramatic. One can drive their own vehicle about 15 miles into Denali National Park, up to the Savage River Bridge, which is where I took the photo above. In about 3-4 weeks, this same tundra landscape will be ablaze with crimson colors. I’ll be back for that and only hope this kind of light greets me then.
