This view from high above the Denali Visitor Center is oriented to the southeast, across the park boundary in the middle distance to the Yanert River Valley beyond. In winter, this expanse is where the sun first emerges and lingers low over the horizon. (Image refreshes about once each minute.)
Managers at the park kennels breed for one litter of puppies each year. This temporary camera will operate each year, starting when the pups are about three weeks old, after their eyes and ears have opened.
You can also follow the happenings of the park sled dog kennels via their blog and by watching for periodic updates on our Facebook, YouTube and Twitter accounts. Thanks for watching.
Park researchers studying air quality operate a visibility webcam looking toward Mount McKinley from Wonder Lake, about 85 miles from the park entrance. The webcam archives high resolution photos for visibility documentation, and runs on solar power.
