The hard snow near Denali’s summit was unlike anything I had seen below. It was not clear like ice, but it felt just as hard. Unknown winds had scoured these slopes for centuries leaving graceful, curving ripples to decorate the slope. Calmed, I sensed a permanence in these snow slopes, as if the rest of the land was soft and might suddenly wash away, whereas this sculpted slope was here forever.
