I was fortunate to have a second 24-hour opportunity to visit Denali this summer. Not as many animal sightings this time, but the weather did permit the summit to make an appearance...

1. Denali as seen from approximately mile 18

2. Lots of fog in the lower elevations

3. The Teklanika River flowed fairly well from the preceding week of rain. On the day I arrived, transit buses heading into the park were all turned around at approximately this point due to mudslides deeper within the park.

Continuing on foot, in hopes of getting close enough to some Dall Sheep I spotted on a peak 6 miles beyond the bus turnaround, I couldn't get close enough to photograph them. In an effort to avoid coming home empty-handed, I settled for these...

4. Yellow warbler (no need to go all the way to Alaska to find these)

5. Chickadee (also pretty common in the lower 48)

6. Arctic Ground Squirrel (the only tundra critter that was in long supply that day)
