Denali (Mt. McKinley), the tallest peak in North America, is depicted in its different moods throughout the year. Starting with the massive mountain dressed in its splendid Autumn colors, it moves through a dramatic winter with fierce storms and an avalanche; Spring abounds as the ice melts, the birds return, and the mountain wakes up; the full glory of the rich wildlife and flowers of summer on Denali ends the work.
