Day trip to Denali

So today I took a (well deserved) day off and went to Denali National Park with John and Meg. Denali is home to Mount McKinley (Denali), North America's highest peak. We didn't see the mountain today because it was socked in, but the fall colours were beautiful and it was a really great day. We hiked around the Savage River and I finally got to pull out the big glass (500 mm lens) and do some real shooting. It's been a while. We didn't see any wildlife unfortunately, except for a sassy groundhog which posed for a quite a while. Here are some of the scenics I shot today. The photos of me are taken by John.

John had a little lens envy.

That is the bridge over the Tanana River in Nenana. I know. It doesn't make sense. But it's geographicaly correct.
