USA ~ Denali National Park - Alaska ~

... Lovely view of an Alaskan moose peeking around a spruce tree...Denali is Alaska's most well known national park, attracting nearly half a million visitors every year... it offers some of the most majestic landscapes and wildlife sightings with only one single road running through the middle... the only national park patrolled in winter by dog sled... Thanks a lot Arnold!!【ツ】

Denali National Park covers just over six million acres, or 9,492 square miles, inclusive the park, wilderness and preserve lands, and Mount Denali, North America’s highest point at 20,310 feet above sea level. At 6 million acres it is bigger than Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon combined.

Denali is known for its iconic mammal species, including black and grizzly bears, wolves, moose, caribou, and Dall's sheep. The park has also 169 species of birds identified in the park, including golden and bald eagles.

Glaciers cover a million acres or one-sixth of the park. "Hundreds of unnamed glaciers and at least 40 named glaciers flow from heights as high as 19,000 feet and descend to elevations as low as 800 feet above sea level,"
