Caribou and Moose are the “deer” of Alaska. Elk and smaller deer species are not common in Alaska, except in zoos.
Much of the snow in Central and Southern Alaska melts in the summer, except at high altitudes. Since my trip occurred in early summer you will notice that there is not much snow and that antlers of Caribou and Moose are still small.
Denali National Park was previously called McKinley National Park and the tallest mountain was Mt. McKinley, but in modern times the mountain and park are now known by their Native American name. It means “the tall one”.
We will remain in Denali for several more weeks in search of moose and other wildlife.
