The Alaska Range as seen from the Denali State Highway. Taken approximately 63 degrees 14' 46" North by 147 degrees 45' 3" west on Google earth coordinates.

This represents approximately 45 linear miles of somewhere around 500 miles of the total mountain range. Mt Mckinley is 150 miles west of this picture.

The highway is open from May - the first of October officially but I went in to see how far I could get. I made it 62 of 135 miles on April 28, 2007. I met the front loader at that point trying to clear what appeared to be the remnants of several avalanches during th winter. Who knows. maybe it just snowed 400 inches at that point this winter. It happens.
