Denali National Park and Preserve is home to Mt. McKinley, the highest peak in North America, as well free-roaming bear, wolves, moose, sheep, caribou and beaver. Even if Mt. McKinley is often obscured by clouds, the majestic surroundings and grizzly families make this park popular.
Talkeetna is the staging point for expeditions bound for Mt. McKinley. On clear days, around this small town there are plenty of places to catch a glimpse of the Alaska Range and 'the big mountain.' When the weather is good, small planes take off with astonishing regularity winging over Denali National Park and back for flightseeing in summer and shuttling climbers to the McKinley's base late spring.
