President Wilson signs act creating Mount McKinley National Park

Mount McKinley National Park was created on this day when President Wilson signed the enabling act creating it.  The park today is known as the Denali National Park and Preserve.

 Denali, or not really.  It'd tower over these lower ranges in this photo, but it's clouded out, as it typically is.

On the day we attempted to view Denali, the peaks were mostly shrouded in clouds, so we only got a glimpse of them very briefly, and never got a photo of the peaks. Spectacular none the less.   Had we been able to photograph the peaks, they would have towered above those peaks seen here.  The peak creates its own weather.
