"Binoculars and Telephoto Vision -- Apply Here!" Top 5 Page for this destination Denali National Park and Preserve Favorite Tip by mrclay2000

  grizzly 4,000 feet away (typical Denali sighting)
by mrclay2000

Favorite thing: As stated in the introduction to this page, sharp eyes are often needed to see the wildlife in Denali. Furthermore it is essential to get past the forested slopes of the park's first ten miles, which means taking a camper or tour bus far into the park's interior (an idea supported by zrim and worldtrekker). worldtrekker's Denali close-ups benefitted largely from nine visits to this park. zrim's distant shots are typical of short stays, though sometimes short-timers will get lucky and long-timers (like richiedisc) have to wait weeks for their prized sightings.
