Denali Backpacking 2012

The Denali Park Road, middle ground, here traverses the Polychrome Mountain area. This single, mostly dirt, 92 mile (148 km) road bisects the Park and Preserve. With few exceptions, private vehicles are not allowed, and access is only by special duty school buses. The 66 mile ride on a camper bus to my drop off point takes 4 hours. Thomas, the driver, gives a detailed commentary on the park as he drives.
