Denali Park, Alaska

View Alaska on divatmotoros's travel map.

Denali Park is six million acres of wild land, about one quarter of Hungary! It is serviced by a single ribbon of road which stretches about 92 miles. Due to the Pretty Rocks Landslide the Denali Park Road is accessible until mile 43 for now and in the summer it is only accessible by buses. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest transform into high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali (formerly McKinley).

We have arrived to the last 3 days before the park closes for the season and we took the bus on the very last day up to mile 43. The scenery is breathtaking and no words nor the pictures below give you any understanding of the unending wilderness you can witness here. You feel out of scale. It is almost frightening to me how big thos land is. Beautiful.
