September in Denali

Fall colors viewed from Eielson Visitor Center

Hiking in Denali in the fall is quite a treat!

One morning in September I came out of my cabin to this scene on the Toklat River.  Those are the Wyoming Hills behind the clouds.

Pretty fall colors!

The bearberry is one beautiful plant that makes the tundra so red in the fall.

More beautiful colors - hiking near the Teklanika River
