The clear water of the Sanctuary River in Denali National Park is located at mile-23 along the Park Road. This was taken last year on April 5 while biking into the park. In stark contrast with this year, we currently have 3.5 feet of snow in the front yard that hasn’t even begun to melt yet. Thanks to Facebook and Google notifications reminding me of all the awesome trips we were able to go on last year at this time. Between the late road opening, possible long-term closure of the road before Polychrome Pass, and current travel restrictions due to COVID-19, I’m very interested in how the atmosphere of the park differs from regular seasons, especially beyond Polychrome.
