A great photo of Foraker, Hunter and Denali in May 2010. Although the blade may seem to distract from the photo, anyone who has flown onto the Kahiltna Glacier in preparation to climb Denali will be reminded of the experience. What a great view that day!
The photo was take around 10:00AM from the road turnoff near Sunshine. There is a nice place there to view the mountain. The photo was taken with a 5 mg Sony DSC F707. Lens set to automatic. This photo is very large and we took three views in order to make a mural for my dental office. I croped the picture to reshape the frame and make it a smaller file. I have many photos on the alaska cam site. 1999, 2003, and 2005 Iditarod. The link is NOT my web site , they just show my pictures.
This is the south face of Mt. McKinley, now called Denali, meaning "The Great One". It was an absolutely beautiful clear day with winds from the east blowing snow off the peak. This is one of my favorite mountains to take pictures and I have many shots of it from different perspectives and seasons.
View of Mt. McKinley during Sept. of 2005. While we were heading south on an unknown road,around 11 A.M., it appeared out of nowhere. It was cloudy all
morning except for about ten minutes, long enough for us to get this shot.
Denali from the Muldrow Glacier in 1975. The Lower Icefall is in the shadowed area above camp and the Great Icefall is in the shadowed area beyond. Between is the Hill of Cracks. Denali's north summit is the dominant peak with the main south summit a snow dome to the left.
We were forced to camp in this crevasse at Browne Tower by a very strong windstorm and a very hard and icy surface in April 1975. We stayed here for three days. The crevasse less than 3-feet wide at the surface.
