Brief Directions

Go North on the Parks Highway to Trapper Creek, then turn left on Petersville Road. The Forks Roadhouse is +/- 15 miles up Petersville Road, and this image was captured on the way.

Notes

I was blessed to watch Mt. McKinley with a clear blue sky from about 2:00 that afternoon until 10:30 the next morning. The Forks Roadhouse is a neat left-over from before the Parks Highway was built, was a decent, but antiquated, place to stay and served good food.

Description

My wife sent me to Alaska for a photography trip, and I stayed at the Forks Roadhouse, South of Denali National Park one night, prior to a scheduled trip into the park the next day. I got this image along the road on the way to check in at the roadhouse, about 2 1/2 hours before sunset. I used a 2-stop graduated ND filter.
