A great spot for a hike, this open, high alpine area gives you a good chance to see Dall Sheep. The ridge gets it’s name from a wildflower, the Primrose, and in the spring and early summer it’s also a great place to see a variety of unique alpine wildflowers.
This is a great picture in the fall, when the foreground is ablaze with red-leafed dwarf birch trees and orange tundra. The mountain is still nearly 70 miles away, but it looms large behind the foothills and tundra to fill your view finder. You can get here via private bus tours (it’s the end point for the Denali Natural History Tour). Or, if you want some exercise mixed with your adventure, drive to the end of the open section of road and then bike two miles to the overlook.
