I’ve been to Alaska twice, once in the early 90’s and once on my honeymoon in 94. I shot this image of Mt. McKinley or Denali as it’s also known while visiting Denali National Park on my honeymoon. The paper I worked for at the time gave me and assignment letter which secured us a photography permit and that allows you to drive a private vehicle down the one dirt road in the park. (Might be more the one now). On this day we were in the park for almost 30 hours and got this shot around 3:00 AM just before sunrise. The clouds dissipated around midnight, sunset, and the mountain was visible to sunrise. Then back behind the clouds which is the case most of the time. Wonder Lake is in the foreground. I hope I can take my kids to Alaska someday!
