We did part of the Triple Lakes trail starting from the Denali visitor center. There was a fire in the Fairbanks area which caused it to be hazy, but still a lovely hike. Denali National Park is sub-arctic so only a handful of trees are able to grow this far north. The pines that grow are either black or white spruce and they are very spindly and ratty looking. I guess if you only have 3 months to do all your growing, you don't get that big, fat Christmas tree thing going. I liked the look of them anyway.
