Standing head and shoulders above the crowd, “the Mountain” dominates the of landscape Denali National Park and central Alaska. On clear days, Denali can be seen from as far away as Anchorage and Fairbanks. While clear skies are common in deep winter, with intense cold locking up moisture, summer skies are often cloudy. This photo taken in late summer shows Denali looming large. If you look closely, you can even see a moose on the tundra. Photo by Jay Elhard, National Park Service.
