The employees at Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska work at one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Fortunately for us, they’re currently holding a staff photo contest to celebrate the parks beauty.
Warning: Their photos will make you want to run away to Alaska.
The contest is being held on Facebook and has four categories. You’ll need to head over to their Facebook page to sort through all the photos, but below is a sneak peek.
Denali (the Mountain)
The photos with the most likes on Facebook will advance to a final round on October 7.
Denali National Park and Preserve is home to North America’s tallest peak, 20,310′ Denali. The name “Denali” means the “the high one” in the native Athabaskan language. The park is six million acres of wild land and is bisected by one road.
Denali National Park is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation on February 26, 1917, designating Mount McKinley National Park. The name Mount McKinley National Park was subject to criticism early on and ultimately changed to Denali.
