Snow Features at Denali's 17k Camp"/>
Denali is truly a wondrous place to see the alpenglow of a sunset. On summer climbs, when the sun never fully sets, the sunset/sunrise can last for well over an hour, casting a wider variety of colors on the snow and ice than I've seen anywhere else. Perhaps some of this is due to the sun setting over the ocean combined with Denali's extreme height?
After weathering a day of high winds at the 17k camp on Denali as a high pressure system moved through on June 17, 2008, I noticed some excellent still-life photography opportunities. What follows is photographs taken of the snow walls and sculpted snow around the camp.
