This camera is perched high atop a shoulder of Mount Healy along the park’s Outer Range. It offers a westward perspective for several miles beyond the entrance area of the park. Snow and extreme conditions may obscure the view at times. The image is set to refresh several times each minute.
Alaska Railroad Depot
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.) Trains pass through the depot around noon and 4:30 pm each day in summer.
Check out the railroad depot webcam.
Regardless of season, "Resting Grizzly" by William Berry, located just outside the entrance to the Denali Visitor Center, may well be the most hugged and photographed work of art in all of Alaska.
Sled Dog Puppies
July 2016 Update:
Join us in the anticipation of the arrival of puppies...ANY day now they could arrive.
Annie was bred to Lucor (father of last year's "Find Your Park" litter) in late May and she is looking pregnant and ready to deliver some time in the next week. Anybody have guesses on what date and time Annie will deliver (July 22-28 is the estimated range)? How many puppies do you think she'll have?
We have started monitoring her body temperature daily. A normal temperature for a dog is 100-102 degrees. Typically, a pregnant female's temperature will drop to around 98 degrees 24 hours before she begins whelping. We do put privacy shields up around the whelping pen while mom is delivering her litter to minimize the stress and distractions for her since we have so many visitors to our kennels every day. We'll leave the tarp up for the first few days to give the newborns and mom lots of time and space to eat, sleep and grow into healthy, happy pups.
We'll be sure to make an announcement here and on our social media sites when this year's newest canine rangers join the pack!
Park researchers studying air quality operate a visibility webcam looking toward Denali from Wonder Lake, about 85 miles from the park entrance. The webcam archives high resolution photos for visibility documentation, and runs on solar power.
FAA Webcams: Eielson Visitor Center, Kahiltna Glacier and the Denali Park Airstrip
The FAA maintains webcams throughout Alaska, including three in Denali.
One is positioned on the Kahiltna Glacier, where most aspiring mountaineers land before starting a trip up the highest peak in North America. The other is at Eielson Visitor Center, located at Mile 66 of the Denali Park Road. The final camera is mounted at the airstrip near the park entrance, which is open to general aviation.
