Alaska: After the Rain

Yesterday’s rain cleared the atmosphere in Anchorage so much today that we had a rare view of Denali. At 20,320 feet, Denali or Mount McKinley is the highest mountain in North America. It is 158 miles from Anchorage.

John heard from a friend that we could get a great view of the mountain from a hilltop park at the edge of the city. So we dropped our other plans and drove right there, getting this special view:

Here too is downtown Anchorage from the hillside:

Earlier, after going out for breakfast, we spotted this moose in a city park:

About 280,000 people live in Anchorage, more than 40 percent of Alaska’s population. About 250 moose live in Anchorage. I count myself lucky to have seen both moose and Denali during my second day here.
