Do you want to know ‘Why visit Valdez?’ and the top paid and free things to do in Valdez?

Why Visit Denali National Park?
First let’s consider ‘why people visit Denali National Park,’ and then the Best Way to see Denali National Park. More than 400,000 people from around the world visit Denali yearly. I don’t think it’s because Denali is the world’s coldest mountain in the land of eternal winter. People want to see the elusive Denali, the highest peak in North America. Denali Mountain, previously known as Mount McKinley, is the centerpiece of Denali National Park which was established in 1917. At 20,310’ high, Denali is taller than Mt. Everest as measured from base to summit – 18,000′ vs 12,000′. Located in south-central Alaska in the Alaska Range, Denali Mountain is one of the most isolated peaks in the world.
In addition to the mountain itself, Denali National Park has 6 million acres of incredible natural beauty. The park offers primitive wilderness, varied wildlife, hiking trails – marked or off-trail, rolling tundra hills, and icy glaciers. It’s a great place to witness so many of the things people visit Alaska to see.Continue reading
