Peaks have always been my magnet, my prime objective. I've been blessed to see and experience many iconic peaks with their beautiful ecosystems around them. The main target of my 2015 trip to the Last Frontier was to see the highest peak on the continent. For 6 days in the park it was shrouded in clouds, which isn't unusual as it creates it's own weather system. Fortunately I was finally rewarded with several days of it standing tall and magnificent, like this. I was awestruck.

"The Koyukon Athabaskans and other local tribes who inhabit the area around the mountain have for centuries referred to the peak as Dinale or Denali. The name is based on a Koyukon word for "high" or "tall." That it is!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

A stream outlet in Denali with varied angles, textures and mixtures of greens and earthtones caught my fancy.

Thanks for taking a look!

Alaska's Richardson highway passes thru this impressive canyon north of Valdez. A spectacular drive past major glaciers and stunning views. Shown here with 2 beautiful waterfalls: Horsetail (328 feet) and Bridal Veil (400 feet), flowing into the Lowe River.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions!

Lowell Creek flows into Resurrection Bay. Seward AK is a short distance to the left. Hard to pick a favorite city in Alaska but Seward and the area sure impressed me.

Friday's here! Enjoy a wonderful Friday and weekend!

A tour bus sits and waits at an upcoming corner to ensure the road is clear to continue. Only 1 bus at a time can make it around these tight corners, with a steep dropoff on the side.

Had a wonderful day on the tour with Denali tour bus driver and good friend Rebecca Tifft this day. Great beauty and lots of wildlife but no Mt. Denali this day. A common occurrence as the highest peak on the continent creates it's own weather circuit.

Another view of the Pass in comments.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions!
