    Our next stop on the Alaska tour was Denali National Park.  It is half way between Anchorage and Fairbanks along the George Parks Highway.  Denali is so large many US States could fit inside it.  We took the 6 hour shuttle trip into the heart of Denali.  On the trip, we saw bears, elk, and many kinds of birds.  We also saw a dog sled demonstration.  Denali is covered in snow during winter and dog sleds are the primary way that the park rangers get around.  Denali also is home to Mt. McKinley, the tallest peak in North America.
