Eielson Visitor Center in Denali National Park

The Eielson Visitor Center was another favorite location in Denali National Park.
This visitor center is accessible only by shuttle bus - located 66 miles inside the park along the gravel road.

The picture above shows Eielson Mountain. We climbed the ridge on the opposite side of the valley for the view (below) of the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is in the bottom center left of the image below. A very nice facility - quite new - it opened just a few years ago.

This is normally a very good location for a view of Mount McKinley. However, the mountain was hiding in the clouds both days we were there.
