The first morning we were in Denali was perfectly clear - what we were told was a 2% day. (Only 2% of the time is it perfectly clear in Denali and on Mt. McKinley.) We headed out for an incredible flightseeing trip through the Alaska range to Mt. McKinley. I've found it very hard to weed out any of the pictures of this wonderful trip - so enjoy it all!

 

Our trip began as our plane wound its way through the lower hills (3,000-4,000 feet) of the Alaska Range. As the plane bobbed in the air, life took on a new perspective.
