Alpenglow Over Mount Foraker

Alpenglow illuminates the northern flanks of Mount Foraker, elevation 17,400 feet. I captured this scene from around 8,000 feet while on an evening sightseeing flight with Kantishna Air Taxi. Kantishna Air Taxi has been providing flight tours since 1992, allowing visitors to get incredible aerial vistas of Denali National Park. Its base of operation is at the end of the 94-mile gravel road, deep within Denali National Park. Granted a concession permit by the National Park Service, they are the only air operator that is based within the boundaries of Denali National Park and Preserve. Kantishna Air Taxi is the only company allowed to provide scenic Alaskan tours from Kantishna and provide air taxi service at the McKinley Park airstrip near the park entrance. I definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to experience Denali National Park from the air.
