The "Denali Fireweed" Experience

It was another beautiful July morning in Denali National Park & Preserve and all 20,320 feet of Mt. McKinley was out in full glory.

The top of the fireweed was in bloom around Reflection Pond indicating that summer was past the midway point but still in full swing. Dragonflies buzzed through the air doing their best to keep the mosquito population in check. Birds flitted about singing their melodious tunes.

Every plant, animal and person appeared to be basking in the richness of the calm and sunny conditions... living for the now.
