This photo is again from K'esugi Ken Campground viewpoint. It is a seperate photo but at the campground you loose some size perspective that you get with the normal picture taken from Denali Viewpoint South.

Our 2023 epic travel adventure took us further north and further south than ever before. In 2023 we also went further in less time than we ever had before.
