This view of "the mountain" was taken from the town of Talkeetna, some 60 miles southeast of Mt. Denali. First climbed in 1913 by four men, including Harry Karstens, the first superintendent of Mt. McKinley National Park (now known as Denali National Park and Preserve). Both the south peak (20,320 feet) and the north peak (19,500 feet) are visible in this photo, a rare event since both peaks are mostly covered by clouds. Temperatures at the top reach -40 degrees F or less, even during the summer months!
