National park photo ops: Head for the very back to snap a photo of this Alaska train
The Alaska Railroad delivers hundreds of visitors a day in Denali National Park & Preserve. The long, domed train is best photographed from the last car while it stretches and curves along the track.
In honor of this year’s National Park Service centennial, the Travel section is posting 100 park travel ideas and tips based on trips staff travel writer Christopher Reynolds has taken, along with photo-op advice from Times photographer Mark Boster. We’ll post one per day through Dec. 31.
