Mountains in the Denali National Park - deepest blue!

Experience it!  Denali National Park

In 1917, Alaska named its first national park Mount McKinley National Park and nearly 70 years later, the park was expanded and renamed Denali National Park.  This vast land has a fascinating ecosystem and is more than a park; it is a wildlife reserve.  And, perhaps its biggest claim to fame is being the home of North America’s highest peak – Mount McKinley, ascending more than 20,000 feet.  This massive park is now more than 6 million acres, an area that can be compared to the size of Massachusetts.  The park is home to nearly forty different varieties of mammals; but, the most popular residents are moose, caribou, wolves, plus brown and grizzly bears.  Denali is Alaska’s heartland and brings you up-close to its majestic beauty and natural wonders.
