Denali in snowmelt

Winter stuck around a little longer this year, but 5 days ago the hammer lifted and now suddenly spring has arrived.  Every day huge changes are noticeable.  I’ve gone for a few drives in the park, taking advantage of the short remaining time we’re allowed to drive 30 miles in on the park road.

Recently I’ve come to love a particular area about 12 miles in.  The views are open and endless, and there are some lovely streams to add interest.

Tonight the light was divine and the melt was particularly active, creating some gorgeously technicolor life to the scene.
