Plains of Murie from Polychrome PassAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Water from the Polychrome Glacier flows into the area known as the Plains of Murie in Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska. The view is from the former Polychrome Rest Stop on the park road at the Polychrome Pass and is looking toward the Alaska Range. The plains are named after Adolpf Murie who was a wildlife biologist who did research in the park on wolves and bears. Murie was instrumental in preserving the biological integrity of Denali National Park.
