Mt Mckinley: South side


Mt Mckinley:  South side

My friend, who took these south coast pictures, lives where any clear day the mountain is in her window. Southside has more open glacier flows. More expeditions are flown in from this side.

The distance mountain to Talkeetna is 70 miles, Talkeetna is 240 miles from where I live. It's still deep winter there too, but spring will come in April.

I love to share. We are such a varied and enormous state, equaling half the continental US or three Texas's. I still haven't seen it all.

Thanks. We call it the great one for a reason. Most of the state is below 1500 ft and this peak is around 21,000ft.
