We caught our first glimpse of the mountain while driving the Denali highway. Look closely above the clouds. That is the mountain peak.
We caught other partial views on our first bus trip through the park and through the clouds and rain. Look through the clouds - that's snow on the mountain.
Driving through the park is a whole other story but this is a sample of the view along the road. Denali is out there somewhere.
We stopped at the Visitor Center in the middle of the park. They have Caribou antlers laying around so I tried to get artsy. Again, the mountain is shown just peaking out above the clouds.
We were pretty happy that we saw parts of the mountain but on our second day, the weather broke and we got to see Denali's true awesomeness. Its hard to understand how big 20,310 feet is until you see it directly compared to the other mountain peaks just in front of it. Those brown things with snow on top are actual mountains. Denali towers above the cloud layer and dwarfs the other mountains.
