When the sun is shinning I can do anything; No mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome -Wilma Rudolph

Summer Solstice in Alaska is a celebration. People will celebrate the by partying, biking, hiking, and just being out and enjoying the endless light. Here at Denali the sun is out for over 20 hours and in the few hours where it’s hidden behind the horizon a faint blue covers the land. It’s a pretty magical experience to be out hiking on top of a mountain from ten o’clock at night until four in morning.
