Specific changes are difficult to detect in this photo pair spanning 29 years, giving one a chance to marvel at all that has remained the same over the time period. How has the town center where you live changed since 1976? How has the way humans interact with their world changes since 1976? Conserving segments of the landscape such as Denali National Park and Preserve allows us to make these comparisons and appreciate the slower pace at which nature sometimes operates.
