Last year, Ben Napolitano took a travel van to the end of the Park Road during Denali National Park’s annual Road Lottery. During this popular event, personal vehicles are allowed on the park road during a 4-day stretch at the end of the summer. It’s a fun way to end the summer season, and it never fails to be a spectacular experience. Ben’s gorgeous photos capture the beautiful fall colors, the abundant wildlife, the snow on the ridgelines drawing summer to a close, and that amazing feeling you get when you reach the end of the road in Kantishna. It’s Road Lottery time again, so we’re sharing Ben’s adventures in hopes that you’ll be inspired to take your own!

Don’t forget to apply for next year’s Road Lottery, and if you win, book a travel van! It’s the perfect way to see Denali National Park in all its fall glory!
