Denali National Park-Photo Finale. The Mountain and other miscellaneous shots

June 29, 2010

A friend from Florida was up in Denali just two weeks prior to my visit and was able to take some great shots of The Mountain.  Since I was not able to provide one, I thought I’d share his.  It really is magnificent to behold, especially from such a close vantage point.  Thank you Russell for your most excellent photo.

In addition to this masterpiece, I wanted to include a few miscellaneous shots I took while enjoying the Park, especially of the wildflowers and a few of the various critters not mentioned earlier.

The Alaska State Flower:  The Forget-Me-Not.  A tiny little thing.

Next, the Golden Eagle.  You may wonder about Bald Eagles since they are so prevalent in Alaska, but Bald Eagles are fish eaters and since fish are not at all abundant in the Park, Golden Eagles are the ticket here.

Roadside Porcupine

Hoary Marmot

And now, the animal responsible for the most injuries to humans visiting the Park…drum roll please.

Ladies and Gentlemen,  I give you the…

Arctic Ground Squirrel!

That’s it for my Denali blogs.  It’s been great sharing the fun.

I’ve just planned a kayak trip to Prince William Sound for later in July, so stay tuned.

    Margie – fabulous photos and I love your writing. I thought of you the other day when listening to Miranda Lambert’s new cd. She has a song called the Airstream Song. You should try to listen to it online or download that song from iTunes….. Its about roaming around.

      Thanks Hoover! I was not familiar with Miranda Lambert, but am glad I am now. I downloaded her Airstream Song and am enjoying it. Thanks!
