A late autumn storm was gaining strength in the Alaska Range. Previous storms had already dusted the landscape with frozen white crystals. Billowing clouds of cream, blue, orange and yellow danced across the sky, playing hid and seek with the blue sky. This photo is a section of the Alaska Range from the Polycrome overlook (mile 46) in Denali National Park.
The Alaska Range is a relatively narrow mountain range in the southcentral region of Alaska, from Lake Clark at its southwest end to the White River in Canada's Yukon Territory in the southeast. The highest mountain in North America, Denali, is in the Alaska Range. The heavy snowfall and cool temperatures help maintain a number of large glaciers in this exceptional range; The highest in the world outside of Asia and the Andes.
