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. In 2012, the camera went live on May 29, 2012 and was turned off on September 30, 2012. The camera will go live again in 2013, once the next litter of pups are born and are moving about.
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.
"You Are Here"
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.)
Park researchers studying air quality host a visibility webcam of Mount McKinley from Wonder Lake, about 85 miles from the park entrance. The camera system currently operates only in summer due to inaccessibility and lack of power during winter months.
As a year-round public service and safety measure for pilots, the Federal Aviation Administration hosts a webcam at the McKinley Park Airstrip adjacent to the Alaska Railroad depot, about a mile inside the park entrance. Images are generally updated every 10 minutes.
The FAA maintains a webcam at Eielson Visitor Center. The camera information contained on this website is a designated FAA supplementary product. Camera images are generally updated every 10 minutes. The time of the last update is indicated on each image. Current site conditions may differ from displayed images due to a variety of reasons; i.e., rapidly changing conditions, image update frequency, optical distortion, etc. As a supplementary product, these images may only be used to improve situational awareness.
Did You Know?
Did you know that in 1908, Charles Sheldon – a hunter and naturalist – described in his journal the idea of a park that would allow visitors to enjoy the beauty he saw while visiting Alaska. In 1917 his vision became reality, with the creation of Mount McKinley National Park.
