Living in tents and a Sportsmobile for months at a time, Kennan and Karen Ward explore the limitless photographic opportunities in the vast Alaska wilderness
Denali National Park And Preserve
Encompassing a complete subarctic ecosystem, Denali includes more than six million acres of federally protected lands abounding with large mammals like moose, wolves, grizzly bear and Dall sheep. It also features more than 600 species of flowering plants and 160 species of birds. With the majestic 20,320-foot peak of Mount McKinley as a backdrop, it’s a location that easily inspires the creativity in any photographer.
“It’s the champion of parks,” says Kennan of Denali National Park and Preserve. “It’s the Everest to a photographer or to any adventurer who wants to see the tallest peak in North America, Mount McKinley. It’s also the place to see grizzly bears, moose, caribou and wolves run rampant. This is where your chances of seeing these wild animals are pretty good.”
