Denali National Park

Denali National Park

The legendary Denali National Park is Alaska's flagship park, and not without reason. It hosts impressive scenery and it has the famous Mt.Denali. Mt.Denali rises up to a sprawling 20,308 feet. Mt.Denali is the highest point in North America. Denali National Park overall has spectacular scenery and an abundance of hiking trails. It also has extremely nice campsites, particularly Wonder Lake, which is the closest you can get to the mountain without climbing it. But another great feature of Denali is its abundance of wildlife, which attract many people to Denali National Park.

Denali National Park has an abundance of grizzly bears. The way to see grizzly bears is on the bus ride though the park. You can see grizzlies hunting, resting, their cubs playing, etc. The bears have been known to walk on the road and even fight in the park, all viewed from the bus. People have seen up to 7 grizzlies on a bus drive, several of them being cubs. I talked to a bus driver who had been driving that year for two months, and he only went on two or three rides without seeing a grizzly. The bears are often far away, so bring your binoculars and telephoto lenses. Though black bears are present, they are seldom seen. Wolves were once in abundance in Denali National Park and spotted on almost every drive, but many who strayed outside the park were killed. Now, only 60 wolves remain in the park and they are seldom seen. Our bus driver said he had been driving that year for two months and had only seen wolves twice. One rare animal that resides in Denali National Park in a healthy population is the lynx. Though sightings are rare, they are probably more commonly observed in Denali National Park then anywhere else in the world.

Whit so much predators in Denali, there has to be prey. Denali has an abundance of an endangered animal. This animal is the dall sheep. They were once almost hunted to extinction in the park. Dall sheep are part of how the park was made. A man who fell in love with dall sheep told the government to make the area a national park, which they did. The past few years have been bad for the sheep though. The most abundant animal that we saw in Denali National Park was the caribou. We had 7-8 sightings, though they were only individuals. Caribou are relatively abundant in Denali and are frequently seen. They are the large mammal you are most likely to see. Moose also live in abundance of Denali National Park. We had two sightings. They are not as common as caribou, but still can be seen. Look in all bodies of water and go in the morning or evening for best viewing.
