Denali from McKinley Princess Lodge, right

Indecision, indecision. I couldn't make up my mind between these two. Yeah, it's sad.


As mentioned before, our bus from Anchorage to Denali made a stop at the McKinley Princess Lodge. Thanks to Mom's weird gift with weather and mountain views, we had some spectacular views of Denali and the Alaska range from their deck. That's where these both came from.

    These pictures are so beautiful and clear. What camera do you use?

    Depends on the photo. This was taken with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. Some of the earlier ones were taken with a Canon point and shoot. Occassionally I borrow my lovely wife's Panasonic. A lot of the clarity here is the stunning weather we had that day and the next. Good lenses and a little sharpening in Photoshop help a lot as well.

    My Canon PhotoStitch attempt. Also had to manually retouch some of the top peaks.
