  Denali - Flora
by Matyas

Probably one of the most famous natinal parks in North America. Denali habitat is a mix of forest at the lowest elevations, including deciduous taiga. The preserve is also home to tundra at middle elevations, and glaciers, rock, and snow at the highest elevations.

Today, the park hosts more than 400,000 visitors who enjoy wildlife viewing, mountaineering, and backpacking. Denal is a home of lots of mammals birds and other creatures.

I saw actually nothing. I've been told that there is not so much chance to see animals nowadays due to the big traffic. He was right i didn't see anything except dall sheeps, birds and a rabbit. Denali is rather a big tourist attraction rather than a peaceful National Park.
I don't like it. Can be a good place if the big mass do not bother you and you have enough money to book bus tickets, etc.
