Pic of the Day

     Alaska Range from Denali Highway, Alaska:  The abundance of wildlife, snowcapped mountains and shoreline as always made Alaska one of my favorite shooting destinations.  This photo of the Alaska Range was taken on my favorite stretch of road.  The Denali Highway connects Cantwell (which is just south of Denali National Park), and Paxson Junction on the Richardson Highway.  The 150+ mile road crosses tundra and taiga, follows riverbeds and crosses mountain passes revealing the stunning beauty of wild Alaska.  From various points on the highway great views of Denali itself is possible.  Denali, the tallest mountain in North America is the second highest peak in the world.  The highway also provides great views of numerous glaciers.  On my first trip across the Denali Highway I only saw two other vehicles.  However the road is highly traveled today, but is still a great way to see the great Alaskan wilderness. 

Nikon F3,  Lens Unknown, Approx. 80mm, Kodachrome 64
