Photo of the Day: Mount McKinley, Denali National Park Alaska


Mount McKinley is also known as Denali, an Athabascan Indian word that means “The High One.” And it is. McKinley is the tallest peak in North America at 20,320 feet (6,194 meters). The mountain is most often photographed from within Denali National Park but we got this shot of McKinley from the south side after finding a locals-only vantage point on a remarkably clear day.

    • Hi Bret,

      No this shot was not taken from Wonder Lake. I actually took it from the south side of McKinley from a vantage point outside Denali National Park. And if you want to enjoy Wonder Lake without mosquitoes visit Denali in September/October. It’s cold, but no bugs!

  1. Glorious scene! We may not have mountains in Nelspruit (South Africa) but we have some pretty stunning vistas ourselves – maybe you should visit our neck of the woods one day
