This owl was sitting on a dead tree not too far from the bus.
Mt McKinley from Stony Hill Overlook (36 miles away)
View of Mt. McKinley from Stony Hill Overlook in Denali National Park. The road is the McKinley/Denali Park Road which is the only access to the park.
Shuttle Bus on Park Road
Shuttle Bus in Denali National Park
This is the only transportation availble to mere mortals in the park past mile 15. There are special permits awarded to pro photographers and others who study wildlife.
Landscape in Denali National Park
Many of these landscape photos were taken from the open window of a moving bus since there was little choice. The buses only stopped at the pre-designated rest stops or for wildlife sightings.
Another far away shot of a bear foraging for food. I am not sure what type of bear this was.
This one was actually pretty close to the bus and required very little cropping.
