Destination: Alaska
About this photo: This photo was taken from the Denali South viewpoint neat Denali National Park, Alaska. It was taken at 11pm and is a photo of the sun setting behind Mt. McKinley. Our guide in the park said that the chances of getting a photo like this one is about 5%, since the mountain is often covered by clouds. This is just one photo from a great 9 day Alaskan vacation.
