Hiking In Denali Park Alaska - A Caribou playing chicken with the bus... The tour buses are the only transportation allowed in the park so the animals feel safe enough to approach very close.

I grew up spending my winters in California and my summers in Denali Park. My parents had seasonal jobs so from the time I was born till I turned 18 I spent my summers exploring central Alaska. While the parents worked I would pack myself a bag lunch, hop on a tour bus out into the park and after a few hour ride get off the bus to explore on my own. This National park is unlike any other I have been to... At six million acres there is more than you could ever explore in a lifetime. From the abundant wildlife to the tallest mountain in north America(Denali which means "The Great One" in Athabascan), the area also offers white water rafting, flightseeing, fishing(although not salmon), husky dog sledding tours, and so much more!

My biggest recommendation is ditch the usual touristy folks and go exploring on your own! Take the tour bus that you can get on and off of freely in case you see that perfect picture or ridgeline you want to hike! Then hop on the next bus...

I will attach a few pictures that I have laying around but if anyone has any questions about a visit dont hesitate to email me!
