Adventures of a wildlife photographer

April 20, 2012

This is part 5 in a series of my photographic adventure in the wilds of Alaska during the summer of 2011. When I last wrote, I was 92 miles into Denali National Park at the Kantishna Roadhouse. This is a privately owned camp, deep in the heart of Denali. I had spent the last three days hiking, fishing and photographing one of the most beautiful parks in the world. It was evening, and the rain moved into the area once again, shrouding the beautiful Mt. McKinley with a thick cover of mist and clouds.
