Description:
This photo features the curve in the Denali Park Road that stretches over a drainage of Upper Hogan Creek near Milepost 20. What was originally a bridge has been replaced by a large culvert. Notice what appears to be a thickening of the forest and an expansion of trees upwards in elevation on the mountain slopes.
