Sanka’s Zoom Lens – The Mountain

The Highest Peak in North America – Denali

Not every one gets to see the great mountain when visiting Alaska.  Many days it’s cover by clouds.  On the weekend of Jr. Iditarod the mountain was out for all to see.  This picture was taken while flying with the Iditarod Air Force from Yentna Station Checkpoint to the Willow Finish Line.  The mountain stands just over 20,300 feet tall.  Over time there’s been a huge controversy over the mountain’s name – Mt. McKinley or Denali.  It’s uninteresting topic to research.
