Sometime between late August and early October, Fall settles into Denali National Park, and much of the vegetation transforms from a lush green into a mix of deep amber, red, and orange hues.
Visitors of Denali National Park can be broken up into two groups: the 30% club and everyone else. The 30% club is made up of the people who were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of Denali, the tallest mountain in North America.
In June and July, visitors of Kantishna Roadhouse are often surprised when they go to bed at 10 pm, and the sun is still up and shining.
The main attraction of Denali National Park is Denali, the most prominent and tallest mountain in the Alaska Range. At 20,310 feet of elevation, the summit of Denali is higher than any other mountain in North America, and visitors come from all over the world for a chance to see it on a clear day.
Spend a Summer in Denali National Park and Preserve!
Denali National Park and Preserve is celebrating its 100th birthday this year and Doyon, Limited is happy to offer seasonal employment opportunities to experience the splendor of the Denali Park area through living and working at the Kantishna Roadhouse (KRH).
We are always amazed by the incredible natural beauty of Denali National Park, and these photos snapped by Kantishna Roadhouse GM Marie Monroe last week captured a wonderful juxtaposition of a full moon, a fresh dusting of snow and alpenglow.
We are blessed this year in Alaska with another spectacular showing of the Northern Lights. Kirsty Knittel, an immensely talented photographer and Kantisha Roadhouse bus driver, captured these images.
Our guests often ask how we close up the Kantishna Roadhouse at the end of the season to prepare for winter.
