Denali, as viewed from the riverside beach near Talkeetna, is 60 miles away. The mountain rises from near sea level (348 feet) behind the forest-lined Susitna River to 20,310 feet. The Park and mountain were closed the previous week due to heavy snowfall with impassable roads and extremely low visibility. On this morning the clouds were dispersed and the mountain was clearly seen it all its glory. A perfect day for flightseeing and photography.
