Denali National Park, June 19, 2001

Crossing the road to start our hike up the ridge across the Park Road from Eielson. [800x600][1600x1200]

A little way up, here the view of Mount Eielson and the VC. [800x600][1600x1200]

A bit further up, we reached snow. [800x600][1600x1200]

Andrew and some mountains. [800x600][1600x1200]

There's a glacier showing through the clouds over in the McKinley direction. [800x600][1600x1200]

Andrew continues up the trail. [800x600][1600x1200]

We've gotten higher - the VC looks smaller. [800x600][1600x1200]

Andrew pointing out what might be a better way. [800x600][1600x1200]

Even a bit more of McKinley's base.. [800x600][1600x1200]

This part was steep and gravely, so we turned back, as demonstrated by Rob. [800x600][1600x1200]

Rob's picture: This is the kind of thing we couldn't climb. Given better equipment, most importantly gloves and hiking boots, it would be a lot easier. Next time.

But this view sure was nice. [800x600][1600x1200]

A flower here in the tundra. [800x600][1600x1200]

A ridge covered with tundra, and Andrew down below. [800x600][1600x1200]

Rob's picture: Andrew and I on our way down. [1600x1200]

More wildflowers in the tundra on the ridge above Eielson. [800x600][1600x1200]

From up here we can see a lake near this river. [800x600][1600x1200]

McKinley is still trying to come out. These may all look the same now, but each time the mountain really does look different. And it kept improving, so I took tons of pictures of it. [800x600][1600x1200]

More wildflowers on the ridge. [800x600][1600x1200]

Still more. [800x600][1600x1200]

Looking toward the Park Road back to the main entrance. [800x600][1600x1200]

We got to see this little guy. Ground squirrel? [800x600][1600x1200]

Apparently there are rocks just West of here on the Park Road. [800x600][1600x1200]

Rob's picture: I believe it. [1600x1200]
