Up here in the Denali National Park area, it is frequently cloudy and often rainy. If rain is in the forecast, we tell guests to take rain gear. If you change your plans in order to avoid the rain, you may not get to see much. There’s an old expression; “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” If waterproof clothes and shoes are part of your gear, the elements will not be uncomftorable. Another thing to keep in mind is that cloudy, rainy weather does not affect the wildlife, so your chances of animal viewing are the same as in sunny weather. And, since it tends to be cooler when it’s cloudy/rainy, the heat won’t be a factor. So pack your rain gear and visit Alaska!!
