AskPatty's Guide to 12 Great National Parks: Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska

AskPatty-12_Great_National_Parks-Denali_National_Park-Mt_McKinley

Denali National Park and Preserve encompasses six million acres of wild land, bisected by just one long ribbon of road, most of which is only open to buses in the sumer season. Also, each September the park hosts a four-day event called "Road Lottery," during which winners of a lottery drawing are given a chance to purchase a single, day-long permit, allowing them to drive as much of the Denali Park Road as weather allows. Travelers along Denali Park Road can see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in Denali, North America's tallest peak, standing at 20,310 feet tall. Denali is the only national park with a kennel of working sled dogs, while large and small wild animals roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages.
