LAST FRONTIERS

WHITE SUMMER - ALASKA - AUGUST 2002

DENALI NATIONAL PARK

On the way from Anchorage to Fairbanks, you'll find Denali National Park, the largest protected ecosystem in the world - more than six million acres - and with North America's highest mountain - 6193 meter Mount McKinley. A fabulous place to visit, provided you are on the lucky side of the 15% of the visitors able to actually see the mountain, and not the clouds!



"GETTING THERE - The best way to get to Denali is by train"




"FLYING AROUND at ten thousand feet: - The airplane tour around Denali is a fantastic experience"



"AIRPLANE - Sometimes the peak is more than three thousand meters higher than you're flying; sometimes it seems that you're going to land on ice!"



"GLACIERS - The marks of the glaciers are clearly seen from the sky, and it can be seen how ridiculously small those planes are when compared with the mountain"


"SAFE AND SOUND - After more than one hour in the air..."


"IMPROVED - Same photo by professionals..."

Com tanta neve bem que se podiam ver uns quantos skis... Bonito sim, mas para verão prefere-se uma prainha, não?

Pois é, mas mesmo no Verão não é facil ver o Monte McKinley assim descoberto. Uma belezura, como diriam os «nossos irmãos» d'Além Atlântico...

Fully agree with you: Wonderful!
