As I saw when I was in Denali National Park last year, it's a steadfast giant who only shows its face to a lucky few. But whether you see it or not, you know Denali is there. Unchangeable and sure, it's a rock-solid anchor to tie to and a beacon to look to.
I hope you are finding your Denali right now. I hope that memories of an unforgettable experience in an iconic place brings you comfort the way Denali does for me. And I hope you promise—as I have—to return. I will go back to Denali and it will still be there, towering and majestic. Let's all commit to returning to the places like Alaska that ignite a fire in our hearts and inspire us.
Like the clouds that blanket Denali, this too will clear. For now here are some images from that fateful trip. Hopefully they bring you hope they way they have me.
Do you have an amazing memory from Alaska to share? We'd love to hear about it. Send it to us at [email protected].
