Several years ago, but at this time of year, I was invited to accompany Alaskan artist Shane Lamb to Denali National Park. Shane had a permit to take a private vehicle into the park, and we were able to stop wherever we wanted to. There is only one 80 mile dirt road in the huge park. We stayed for 4 days and camped in the park, and rubbed shoulders with the world's top wildlife photographers. We also got to hang out with Carl Brenders, one of the top wildlife artists of the world. Shane took this photo of me near Polychrome Pass.
The Thoroughfare River got it's name because animals migrate in the riverbed. The tundra covered slopes are difficult to walk on.
Shane Lamb. These colors have not been enhanced at all, but these photos are scans from the original slides. Hence the lack of sharp detail.
There were magnificent vistas everywhere we turned. Stay tuned for more.
