In 2013, Denali enlisted mural artist, Karen Carr, to illustrate Denali’s rich fossil history. This collaborative project between scientists and artists now allows visitors to journey back in time. The mural shows a ground-level view of what Cretaceous Denali might have looked like. It also showcases the wealth of our paleontological research knowledge.
