Approximately 70% of the time the summit is surrounded in CLOUDS.

Don't ask me how (after a 4 hour bus trip to the Eielson center at the park) I would know this.

THIS is McKinley (Denali): Taken on the Parks Highway...south viewing area...OUTSIDE the park.
Mt. McKinley (Denali)
We were there this summer, and our guides said we we among the luckiest people to visit... Saw two full unvailings!

If we heard it once, we heard it 100 times on the way to the McKinley resort....

- "most people dont get to see it..."
- some have been three and four times, and not seen it...

When we arrived at the resort - the mountain was completely obscured by clouds. Later in the afternoon the temps began to warm and the skies began to clear. As we were seated for dinner - the final clouds disappeared and we had a clear view! The mountain was observable into late evening - then, the next morning it was visible again! We were truly lucky.

NB: the BMW 1150 GS/adv. is called "Karl Dall" in Germany after a comedian who looks like the front lights.
