Denali National Park, Alaska – part I

After the journey in Katmai National Park (Brooks Camp and The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes), we continued our quest to Denali National Park.

From Anchorage we took the bus to the north. The road goes through picturesque landscape towards the Alaska Mountains Range.

We entered the Denali National Park area. We camped in tents.

In the first day we wandered in the Polychrome Pass area.

They probably feel safer close to people, where the lynx is not coming.
