Hunter and 5,000 ft below McKinley's peak but it doesn't look that far above us, I suppose because of it's enormity.

It sounds totally brutal. Buoyed up by a great morning, we get the shuttle to the train depot (the US lingo is sinking in!) to catch the bus to Denali Backcountry Lodge. This lodge is at the end of the road into Denali National Park, 92 miles away. There ...
