winter snow flying

We took advantage of unusualy clear skies to see Mt. Mckinley by airplane. The pilot decided the winds were becoming calm enough to make a flight. And with four other folks signed up, there was enough participants for us to see this mountain up close, but not too personal. When God made this mountain, he made it huge! Some of the walls are sheer rock a mile high. It was incredible. “The heights of the mountains are his also.” Psalm 95.4

beautiful ice capped ridge

they named an Anchorage Restaurant after this peak: "Moose's Tooth"

not even half way up... we didn't get above eight thousand feet. Denali's peak is at 20 thousand

The little blip in the center of the photograph is a 15 foot high igloo where a Japanese photographer is holed up during the day, while by night he is seeking to take photo's of Denali and the Northern Lights. He has been there for three weeks.
