These are some distant snowy peaks, not Mt Denali, way too small for that.
This is a rest area on Polychrome Pass one of the most colorful places in the park with lots of different colored rocks in the surrounding mountains.
This picture doesn't show it at all.
You can't hang out the windows to prevent the animals from getting used to humans but you can open them to take pictures. Closing them is another thing, it takes a certain knack and determination to get them closed all the way. And it is chilly so you need to close them.
The road continues to Wonder Lake but since we can't see the mountain in this weather we decided to Climb a mountain right behind the visitor center.
Paul skipped the hike and went on to Wonder Lake, we wonder if he didn't make the right choice!
They try to catch this on video but it will never happen!
In this case my brother caught sight of this Coyote before the driver.
Cool thing about Ranger hikes besides the hiking and information is you get a special bus to pick you up so you don't have to worry about getting on a bus.
In Denali you don't have trails, this is opposite every other park... they WANT you to just hike wherever you want, tromping on anything. They even tell you to spread out and not walk in a line. They would like to keep the park trail free so it looks at natural as possible.
This is odd and we look forward to learning the ropes with a ranger around to ask questions.
