Chulitna (F)

Born: 06/08/2003
Weight: 62 lbs
River Litter

Chulitna shows natural leadership abilities and is a bright girl. She is very sweet and affectionate, the one dog who cannot ever get enough attention. In the wintertime, when she’s on the trail, she’s all business and has shown her strength as a lead dog. In the summertime, she can be counted on to cause some mischief in the team-- she knows it’s all for show.

Denali is home to both black bears and grizzly (brown) bears. Black bears inhabit the forested areas of the park, while grizzly bears mainly live on the open tundra. Almost all bears seen by visitors along the Park Road are grizzlies.
