Mt. McKinley from the ground


While Robert, Jeanne & Don hung out in the village, I went on a McKinley Discover Tour flight. No words can adequately describe it...so here are a few of the pics (actually I had taken 500 plus). After my flight, I wandered over to the local cemetery. I like cemeteries...there's so much history in them. When Robert & I got back to the lodge I continued to take pics of Mt McKinley and surrounds. Unlike yesterday, the skies were blue with only scattered clouds. Denali State Park showed another photosymphony in the theatre. This one was photography of the Aurora Borealis: "The Crown pf Lights". It was just as awe inspiring as the one we saw last night. Both productions were done by LeRoy Zimmerman, Alaska's Photo Laureate.
