While my first week at Denali consisted mostly of sitting in a windowless office staring at computer screen getting trained on audio description for web videos, I did have the opportunity to make out to East Fork on the park road.

Denali, often referred to as "the mountain" looms towers in the distance. Denali is the tallest mountain in North America.

A notebook left in the cabin for visitors to write in. Clearly 10 days in a cabin in the wilderness makes you contemplate the difficult questions of life.
