Harper Lodge in Denali National Park, Alaska

Harper Lodge
at Denali

The sender writes:
Snow is on all the mountains up here but we have lucked out on the weather so far.  We toured this park yesterday and saw caribou, grizzly bear, moose and sheep.  We also saw a new bird.  We will take the train ride of 8 hours next to Anchorage and then fly out on Tuesday.  The temp has been in the 20's and it doesn't warm up much.

This postcard is postmarked in 1989 from Alaska.

I think this lodge is now the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge.
However I did find out that when it was the Harper Lodge, it was named after Walter Harper. . . .

At the age of 21, Harper became the first climber to reach the 20,320-foot summit of Mt. McKinley, (Now called Mout Denali),   the highest peak in North America.

The history-making moment happened on June 7, 1913.
