Denali Fall Colors

Our view leaving the park
There are a few more photos worth sharing from our Denali trip. The drive home was so spectacular it is really hard to complain about the foggy weather we had on our lottery day in the park. We also got to be there at the height of the fall colors (I know it's not exactly New England, but the brushy tundra colors are something special in their own right).

I really do think we hit the absolute height of the fall colors spot-on because on our last night it frosted. It 26 degrees when we left the campground at about 9 in the morning, so it had probably gotten down in the low 20's during the night. A lot of the leaves of the dwarf birch and willow had fallen off by the time we drove out in the mid-morning.
