The GMC Denali nameplate is used by GMC on its top-of-the-line trucks and SUVs in the line-up. Vehicles with the Denali trim option carry list prices up to 47% higher than those of the regular models. Prices range from $40,240 for GMC Terrain to $81,270 for a top-of-the-line Yukon XL Denali; the Denali nameplate is used as an insignia or status symbol, in particular is popular as a less costly alternative to the Cadillac Escalade. The Yukon Denali line represents 40% of Yukon sales in both units and dollars. In 2013 it sold more than 75,558 units of the Denali brand, which accounted for 20% of GMC's sales, making it one of GM's most successful sub-brands, all done without any advertising or promotion whatsoever; the Denali nameplate started as the top-of-the-line version of the GMC Yukon for the 1999 model year. It was GM's first attempt to go after sales from the new-for-1998 Lincoln Navigator. At the time of its introduction General Motors decided to give Cadillac its own luxury SUV so the Denali's exterior was shared with the 1999 Cadillac Escalade, with only the front fascia and lower side body panels differing from the standard Yukon.
Though the Yukon was redesigned alongside the Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe in 2000, the Denali and Tahoe Limited/Z71 retained their 1990s base design. The "Denali" moniker is derived from the name for the traditional, native name of the tallest mountain in North America, is the name of the national park that surrounds the mountain, as well as a state park. In 1999 at the time of its introduction the Yukon Denali's exterior, which it shared with the 1999 Cadillac Escalade, differed from the standard Yukon in the front fascia and lower side body panels as well as having unique 16" DICKIE polished aluminum wheels and a special exhaust cutout for a right side-exiting cast exhaust tip; the interior of the Denali featured several upgrades not available on the mainstream Yukon. These standard features included an upgraded Nuance leather interior and passenger 6-way power seats with power lumbar support and rear heated seats, a Bose 7 speaker audio system, an in-dash cassette, single CD player and an in-console 6-disc CD changer.
Zebrano woodgrain accents decorated the front doors and center console. The front and rear doors featured unique "Yukon Denali" stitching in the panels; the 350 cubic inch 5.7-litre 255 horsepower V8 was the only engine offered. RPO ZM9 was standard which included Bilstein 46mm shock absorbers and 3.73 front and rear axle ratios as well as a locking rear differential. Separate coolers for the transmission and engine oil were standard; the Denali upgrade included GM's automatic transfer case which allowed for push button transitions from 2-wheel high to 4-wheel high to 4 wheel low or automatic switching from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive. Though the GMC Yukon was redesigned alongside the Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe in 2000, the Denali and Escalade retained their 1990s base design, it was not until 2001. GMC introduced the extended-length Yukon XL Denali. Embossed side body panels and chrome surrounding the headlights differentiate the Yukon Denali from the regular Yukon. 2001 saw the introduction of the honeycomb pattern grille which now has become the hallmark of the Denali nameplate.
2001 saw the introduction of the 6.0L V8 application in the standard-size Yukon in the Denali trim for $45,000.00 which it shared with the Cadillac Escalade. The engine produced 320 hp upon its introduction was upgraded to 325 hp in 2003. 2001 introduced a new upgraded interior and new options such as 20-inch wheels. The previous C3 model of the GMC Sierra pickup truck was renamed Denali in late 2001 as a 2002 model; the 2002–2004 Sierra Denali was equipped standard with a 325 hp 6.0L V8, all-wheel-drive, Quadrasteer, the 4-wheel steering system developed by General Motors. For 2005-2006 and 2007, "Classic body style" Sierra Denalis were equipped with a 6.0L 345 HP V8. Additionally the trucks from 2005-2007 were changed to a crew cab with a 5'8" bed and did not have Quadrasteer as the 2001-2004 Sierra Denalis had. In 2007 the GMC Yukon and Sierra lines were revamped with the Denali included, now with a 6.2L V8 in the Yukon Denali and in the Sierra Denali), six-speed automatic transmissions, many new features and options such as power folding second row seats and rear backup camera.
Styling was changed the controversial grill and headlights, which made the Yukon look much less aggressive than any previous models. The MSRP's of the 2007 models were not increased. In 2008 there were few small changes such as the gauge cluster on Sierra Denali; the GMC Denali XT is a concept hybrid pickup truck with unibody design using Zeta platform. It included 8.1L SIDI V-8 with Active Fuel Management engine rated 326 horsepower with E85 ethanol-capability and direct-injection, two-mode hybrid propulsion system, 23-inch aluminum wheels with Kumho 255/35/R23 front and Kumho 285/35/R23 tires, height-adjustable suspension, 1,100 pounds payload and 3,500 pounds towing capacities. The vehicle was designed by GM's Australian design studios; the vehicle was unveiled in 2008 Chicago Auto Show. Although General Motors planned for a production version based on Epsilon II platform, it was reported the company cancelled the plan because the unibody design would not give much of an efficiency boost while losing capability for which buyers were willing to pay a premium.
In 2009, minor changes were made to the Yukon Denali. These changes include 403HP instead of 380HP, Cooled and perf
Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,310 feet above sea level. With a topographic prominence of 20,156 feet and a topographic isolation of 4,629 miles, Denali is the third most prominent and third most isolated peak on Earth, after Mount Everest and Aconcagua. Located in the Alaska Range in the interior of the U. S. state of Alaska, Denali is the centerpiece of Preserve. The Koyukon people who inhabit the area around the mountain have referred to the peak as "Denali" for centuries. In 1896, a gold prospector named it "Mount McKinley" in support of then-presidential candidate William McKinley. In August 2015, following the 1975 lead of the State of Alaska, the United States Department of the Interior announced the change of the official name of the mountain to Denali. In 1903, James Wickersham recorded the first attempt at climbing Denali, unsuccessful. In 1906, Frederick Cook claimed the first ascent, proven to be false; the first verifiable ascent to Denali's summit was achieved on June 7, 1913, by climbers Hudson Stuck, Harry Karstens, Walter Harper, Robert Tatum, who went by the South Summit.
In 1951, Bradford Washburn pioneered the West Buttress route, considered to be the safest and easiest route, therefore the most popular in use. On September 2, 2015, the U. S. Geological Survey announced that the mountain is 20,310 feet high, not 20,320 feet, as measured in 1952 using photogrammetry. Denali is a granitic pluton lifted by tectonic pressure from the subduction of the Pacific Plate beneath the North American Plate; the forces that lifted Denali cause many deep earthquakes in Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. The Pacific Plate is seismically active beneath Denali, a tectonic region, known as the "McKinley cluster". Denali has a summit elevation of 20,310 feet above sea level, making it the highest peak in North America and the northernmost mountain above 6,000 meters elevation in the world. Measured from base to peak at some 18,000 ft, it is among the largest mountains situated above sea level. Denali rises from a sloping plain with elevations from 1,000 to 3,000 ft, for a base-to-peak height of 17,000 to 19,000 ft.
By comparison, Mount Everest rises from the Tibetan Plateau at a much higher base elevation. Base elevations for Everest range from 13,800 ft on the south side to 17,100 ft on the Tibetan Plateau, for a base-to-peak height in the range of 12,000 to 15,300 ft. Denali's base-to-peak height is little more than half the 33,500 ft of the volcano Mauna Kea, which lies under water. Denali has two significant summits: the South Summit is the higher one, while the North Summit has an elevation of 19,470 ft and a prominence of 1,270 ft; the North Summit is sometimes counted as sometimes not. Five large glaciers flow off the slopes of the mountain; the Peters Glacier lies on the northwest side of the massif, while the Muldrow Glacier falls from its northeast slopes. Just to the east of the Muldrow, abutting the eastern side of the massif, is the Traleika Glacier; the Ruth Glacier lies to the southeast of the mountain, the Kahiltna Glacier leads up to the southwest side of the mountain. With a length of 44 mi, the Kahiltna Glacier is the longest glacier in the Alaska Range.
The Koyukon Athabaskans who inhabit the area around the mountain have for centuries referred to the peak as Dinale or Denali. The name is based on a Koyukon word for "high" or "tall". During the Russian ownership of Alaska, the common name for the mountain was Bolshaya Gora, the Russian translation of Denali, it was called Densmore's Mountain in the late 1880s and early 1890s after Frank Densmore, an Alaskan prospector, the first European to reach the base of the mountain. In 1896, a gold prospector named it McKinley as political support for then-presidential candidate William McKinley, who became president the following year; the United States formally recognized the name Mount McKinley after President Wilson signed the Mount McKinley National Park Act of February 26, 1917. In 1965, Lyndon B. Johnson declared the north and south peaks of the mountain the "Churchill Peaks", in honor of British statesman Winston Churchill; the Alaska Board of Geographic Names changed the name of the mountain to Denali in 1975, how it is called locally.
However, a request in 1975 from the Alaska state legislature to the United States Board on Geographic Names to do the same at the federal level was blocked by Ohio congressman Ralph Regula, whose district included McKinley's hometown of Canton. On August 30, 2015, just ahead of a presidential visit to Alaska, the Barack Obama administration announced the name Denali would be restored in line with the Alaska Geographic Board's designation. U. S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell issued the order changing the name to Denali on August 28, 2015, effective immediately. Jewell said the change had been "a long time coming"; the renaming of the mountain received praise from Alaska's senior U. S. senator, Lisa Murkowski, who had introduced legislation to accomplish the name change, but it drew criticism from several politicians from Pres

Denali State Park is a 325,240-acre state park in the U. S. state of Alaska. It is located in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough adjacent to the east side of Denali National Park and Preserve, along the Parks Highway; the park is undeveloped wilderness with the exception of the two day-use areas, three campgrounds, two trailheads accessible from the Parks Highway. Alaska Veterans Memorial Denali Viewpoint South K'esugi Ken Campground Byers Lake Campground, near Byers Lake Denali Viewpoint North Campground Lower Troublesome Creek Campground Upper Troublesome Creek Trail Little Coal Creek Trail Denali State Park is a 325,240 acres State Park in Alaska, it is located on the south eastern border of Denali National Park and Preserve known as Mt. McKinley National Park, a much larger and more popular park in the area. Denali State Park is in the southern portion of Alaska. Denali State Park is situated between Anchorage Alaska. Alaska’s Highway 3, George Parks Highway, connects Fairbanks and Anchorage and runs directly through Denali State Park.
This highway provides access to many different hiking routes and look out points which allow visitors to see Denali and many different parts of the natural environment only found in Alaska. One of these points include Kesugi Ridge in the Peters Hills area. A popular trail, known for its incredible views of the Alaska Range and tundra around it; the Alaska Range runs just north of Denali State Park and inside of Denali National Park, making the national park a more well known tourist destination. Denali State Park is in sight of Mount Denali. Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation 20,310 feet above sea level. Since it rises 18000 ft base to peak it is the largest mountain situated above sea level, Making the area a popular tourist site. To the east, the state park borders the Susitna River, which feeds into the Gompertz Channel near Anchorage into the ocean. There are several other rivers in the surrounding area which are visited by tourists. Denali State Park is home to many different terrains, animals and opportunities to safely and respectfully enjoy these parts of a natural wild environment.
The Denali State Park wilderness draws many different types of visitors for many different reasons. It gives many opportunities to explore for backpackers, canoers, fishermen, rock climbers, just people driving through. Mount Denali is one of the main attractions, there are easy-to-reach lookout points for visitors driving through. Sometimes, though, it is hard to view the peak due to other weather issues. Denali, however, is not the only peak one can view, its surrounding range is not the only place for exploration; the Talkeetna Mountains to the east offer different levels of climbing and backpacking experiences. Divided by a large valley, there are many different views of Alaska looking in either direction; the tundra on the surrounding plateau of the ranges and in the park offer a unique environment for plants and animals. This terrain offers lots of small lakes which are easy to hike to and visit. Following used trails will allow visitors to view many of the park's natural beauties during their trip.
Rivers in the area allow for clearwater canoeing and rapids for various levels of canoers and kayakers. This area is known for its salmon fishing during season. Since the environment is still rugged and uninhabited it is left wild, using proper camping and environmental practices keeps the park clean for the next visitor to see it as wild as it should be. Different seasons strike the area. During summer, there are 21 hours of constant daylight every day, with the sun dropping behind the horizon; the summer temperature is in the 80s and lower, making for nice conditions to view many attractions. During winter, the sun stays hidden most of the day and can get down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit, with snow covering most of the land. During all of the seasons the surrounding glaciers in the area can be visited, their distinct runoff paths can be seen; the flora and fauna in the park comprise a diverse habitat. The plants and animals are part of the ecosystem in the area and should be respected by visitors to the park.
Animals visitors may see include black and grizzly bears, deer, elk and smaller ground mammals. Certain seasons attract insects, like mosquitos, so visitors should be prepared. Many unique bird species exist in the park, including certain water birds. For example, loons and trumpeter swans are attracted to the park's many lakes and streams. Fishing the clear streams provides the opportunity to see many different types of fish; the tundra is home to many unique plant species which are able to survive the winter and summer without dying, along waterways many different trees and plants can be found.

Gumby is an American clay animation franchise, centered on a green clay humanoid character created and modeled by Art Clokey. The character has been the subject of a feature-length film and other media. Since the original series aired, Gumby has become a famous example of stop-motion clay animation and an influential cultural icon, spawning tributes and merchandising. Gumby follows the titular character on his adventures through different environments and times in history. Gumby's primary sidekick is a talking orange pony, his nemeses are the Blockheads, a pair of red humanoid figures with cube-shaped heads, inspired by the trouble-making Katzenjammer Kids. Other characters include Prickle, a yellow dinosaur who sometimes styles himself as a detective with pipe and deerstalker hat like Sherlock Holmes; the 1988 syndicated series added Gumby's sister Minga, mastodon friend Denali and chicken friend Tilly. Gumby was created by Art Clokey in the early 1950s after he finished film school at the University of Southern California.
Clokey's first animated film was a 1953 three-minute student film called Gumbasia, a surreal montage of moving and expanding lumps of clay set to music in a parody of Disney's Fantasia. Gumbasia was created in the "kinesthetic" style taught by Clokey's USC professor Slavko Vorkapić, described as "massaging of the eye cells." Much of Gumby's look and feel was inspired by this technique of editing. In 1955, Clokey showed Gumbasia to movie producer Sam Engel, who encouraged him to develop his technique by animating figures into children's stories. Clokey moved forward; the name "Gumby" came from the muddy clay found at Clokey's grandparents' farm that his family called "gumbo". Gumby's appearance was inspired by a suggestion from his wife, that Gumby be based on the Gingerbread Man; the color green was chosen because Clokey saw it as both racially neutral and a symbol of life. Gumby's legs and feet were made wide for pragmatic reasons. Gumby's famous slanted head was based on the hairstyle of Clokey's father, Charles Farrington, in an old photograph.
Clokey's pilot episode was seen by NBC executive Thomas Warren Sarnoff, who asked Clokey to make another one. The second episode, Gumby on the Moon, became a huge hit on Howdy Doody, leading Sarnoff to order a series in 1955 entitled The Gumby Show. In 1955 and 1956, 25 eleven-minute episodes aired on NBC. In early episodes, Gumby's voice was provided by Ruth Eggleston, wife of the show's art director Al Eggleston, until Dallas McKennon assumed her role in 1957. Gumby's best friend, an orange pony named Pokey, was introduced during the earliest episodes; because of its variety-type format, The Gumby Show featured not only Clokey's puppet films, but interviews and games. During this time, the show went through a succession of Robert Nicholson and Pinky Lee. In 1959, The Gumby Show entered syndication, more episodes were produced in the 1960s. Production started in Hollywood and in 1960 moved to a larger studio in Glendora, where it remained until production ended in 1969. During this time, Gumby was voiced by Norma MacMillan, by Ginny Tyler.
The cartoon shorts introduced new characters including a blue mermaid named Goo and a yellow dinosaur named Prickle. Beginning in 1982, Gumby was parodied by Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live. According to Murphy’s parody, when the television cameras were turned off, the sweet Gumby reverted to his true self: an irascible, cigar-chomping celebrity, demanding of the production executives. Whenever the executives refused to give in to his demands, Gumby would assert his star status by saying “I’m Gumby, dammit!"In 1987, the original Gumby shorts enjoyed a revival on home video. The following year, Gumby appeared in The Puppetoon Movie; this renewed interest led to a reincarnation of the series consisting of 99 new seven-minute episodes produced for television syndication in association with Lorimar-Telepictures in 1987. Dallas McKennon returned to voice Gumby in the new adventures, in which Gumby and his pals traveled beyond their toyland-type setting and established themselves as a musical band.
The show included new characters, such as Gumby's little sister Minga, a mastodon named Denali and a chicken named Tilly. In addition to the new episodes, the 1950s and 1960s shorts were included in the series, but with new audio; the voices were re-recorded and the original music was replaced by Jerry Gerber's synthesizer score from the 1987 series. Legal issues prevented Clokey from renewing rights to the original Capitol Records production tracks. Starting in 1992, TV channels such as Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network aired reruns of Gumby episodes. In 1995, Clokey's production company produced an independently released theatrical film, Gumby: The Movie, marking the character's first feature-length adventure. In it, the villainous Blockheads replace Gumby and his band with robots and kidnap their dog, Lowbelly; the movie featured in-joke homages to science-fiction films such as Star Wars, The Terminator and 2001: A Space Odyssey, Red Heat. In 1998, the Gumby episode "Robot Rumpus" was featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
On March 16, 2007, YouTube announced that all Gumby episodes would appear in their full-length form on its site, digitally remastered and with their original soundtracks. This deal extended to other video sites, including AOL. In March 2007, KQED-TV broadcast an hour-long documentary Gumby Dha
