DENALI PARK, ALASKA 

Best Time to Visit Denali National Park and its Wildlife

The Denali National Park is located 240 miles north of Anchorage and includes the highest north-American mountain (Mount McKinley) and a superb park where visitors can watch a huge variety of wildlife: wild bears, caribous, moose, wolves, porcupines, red foxes and hares, eagles and many other species of birds. 

The mountain sceneries and the beautiful sights around Denali (the glaciers, the tundra, the taiga, the wildlife) explain the persistent throngs demanding Denali in Summer.
