Kashwitna Lake

We set out with our hosts and friends (George, Jeannie, Eloisa, and Jeff) to get a glimpse of Denali, or Mt. McKinley as the U.S. Congress named it in 1917. Its elevation of 20,237 feet above sea level makes it the highest peak in North America. But, alas and alack, clouds obscured it that afternoon, no matter how hard we huffed and puffed to try to blow them away. 
But we gave it a shot. And we enjoyed a little time on the shore of Kashwitna Lake along Parks Highway. It is surrounded by private property, except the shoreline adjoining the parking lot off the road. And while there we got to see a float plan come in for a landing. Many small homes and cabins dot the northern shores of this lake, and it so happens that Susitna Air Service was based on this lake for many years. So how about that?
