  Denali as seen from Denali Viewpoint South
by mrclay2000

Of the tens of thousands of places throughout Alaska from which Denali (Mt McKinley) is visible, the most celebrated and most published is probably that from Denali Viewpoint South. Visitors to the national park will stop at this prospect by the hundred without realizing they are seeing the great peak from within the confines of Denali State Park. The somewhat subdued coloration of Ruth Glacier at the foot of the range disguises its enormous dimensions, but one glimpse instantly reveals the thickness of the interior forests.

Directions: adjacent to Denali National Park (from the southeast)
