Morning along the Denali Highway

Morning along the Denali Highway
After leaving Denali National Park, we drove the Denali Highway east to Paxson. In spite of its name, the Denali Highway is a narrow gravel road for most of its length, nearly 135 miles. We saw only one other vehicle the whole length of the road and some wonderful scenery, stopping often for photos.

We saw quite a few new birds, including an Albatross, Arctic Terns and some smaller birds that I am still trying to identify.

Marvelous & peaceful scene! Nicely captured =) The Denali Highway is a great way to effortlessly get great scenery photos... My friends and I did the whole length on horseback some years ago --- back when those peaks in the background still had snowcaps year round.

That's amazing. That would be a remarkable ride. Did the mosquitoes bother?
2 years ago.
Fizgig has replied to Ron Hanko
No.... Mainly 'cause there's no way we would've undertaken than ride during mosquito season ;) Would've been too much to ask of the horses (such long exposure to relentless mosquito bites would actually be detrimental to their health) and none of us really wanted to donate blood in such a torturous fashion. No, we picked a time of year when it was going to be too cold for any insects to be bugging us ;) Fewer people around in the off season, too.

I HAVE been in AK during the "summer".... Wanted to check out bears and stuff. I kid you not, we could hear the whine of mosquito swarms almost 1/4 mile before getting near any water. The bears were amazing and all, but we all swore to never go up there during mosquito season as long as we lived. It was the most miserable week I've ever spent in the wilderness. LOL!

glad you'd mentioned the mozzies Ron saw this shot, beautifully captured et all, but straight away thought he must have encountered them darn mosquitoes

You have my fullest admiration … well done Fizgig for the hind sight as well and the utmost consideration for the horses
