Mt. Mckinley as seen from the south side, just north of the small town of Talkeetna. Alaska is far more accessible than I had ever thought it was. All you need to do is catch a flight to Anchorage (watch Alaska Air because they have some really inexpensive last minute specials), rent a car, drive an hour and a half north, take a photo with a ‘Levi for Mayor’ sign in Wasilla, wave at the Russians, and bingo you would be standing on the exact spot I shot this.
