This photo pair will be instantly recognizable to many Park visitors as the view from Stony Hill towards Denali, with the Little Stony Creek crossing visible below. Note the big change in the amount of vegetation along the creek, which was quite barren in the earlier photo but much more heavily vegetated in the 2002 image.
