The Deadliest Predators

High above river valleys, at overlooks like this, Denali's first human visitors watch for mammoth, giant bison, and caribou. Ridge tops made the best game launching platforms; herds tend to follow sheltered stream corridors.

Hunters had to be expert, deadly; the climate was too harsh for year-round edible plants. Caribou fur made the warmest clothing. Its microscopically hollow hairs are a natural insulator.

While they waited the hunters made knives and repaired and sharpened weapons - archaeologist have discovered spear points, chipped blades, in stone cutting holders. The evidence is scant but datable: 10,000 years ago these nomadic hunters - descendants of people who crossed the Bering land bridge - followed caribou trails through Denali.
