Climate
In Anchorage, the average temperatures at the end of June and the beginning of July range from the low- to mid-50s in the evenings to the mid-60s during the day.
In Denali, temperatures can range from the low-30s to the mid-70s. While rare, it has been known to snow in July, so it is good to be prepared for cold weather. Wearing layers of clothing makes it easy to regulate your body temperature.
Also, a good waterproof, hooded raincoat is invaluable. June through August are the rainiest months in Denali, and although yearly variances sometimes lead to bone dry summers, Denali always keeps you guessing.
