About the Author:

Ike Waits first hiked in Denali National Park while working summer jobs there in 1967 and 1968. This experience prompted a permanent move from Arizona to Alaska in 1974. During a community development career he worked throughout Alaska. He now pursues photography and writing fulltime. Waits has hiked and floated rivers in Gates of the Arctic National Park and continued hiking in Denali. In 1995 he decided to produce this book to encourage more people to get off the Denali bus and hike. Each summer since 1995 he spent at least two weeks in the park researching these hikes and photographing. He is a member of the Alaska Society of Outdoor and Nature Photography Association and the Alaska Photographic Center.
