Denali National Park and the Alaska Range

Wildlife is a main reason for visiting Denali, but they also have the right of way, even during the Denali Road Lottery days. This female and her 2+ year old cub tied up traffic for hours as they found it easier to walk along the road than cross country.
Any close wildlife are sure to cause a traffic jam during the Denali Road Lottery days.
We look forward to the annual Denali Road Lottery, when we can compete for a chance to drive our own car on the 85 miles to Wonder Lake. Every year is different, but if the summer was wet and a hard frost hasn't yet come, the fall colors can be spectacular.

The golden eagles of Denali have been the subject of many years of scientific research.
Catching a glimpse of a wild wolf is not as rare as you might expect at Denali, but their numbers have declined in recent years.
