DENALI NATIONAL PARK (AP) The Denali National Park and Preserve will hold its 2003 road lottery from Sept. 12-15, the National Park Service said.
The annual lottery takes place after the park's shuttle buses stop running, permitting up to 400 private vehicles each day to drive the length of the park road.
''September is a wonderful time to visit this magnificent park,'' said Superintendent Paul Anderson. ''The fall colors can be superb, and wildlife viewing opportunities are at their peak as the animals prepare for winter.''
To enter, a self-addressed, stamped, business-sized envelope must be sent to Road Lottery, Denali National Park and Preserve, P.O. Box 9, Denali Park, AK., 99755.
A full name and complete mailing address should be included on the envelope. Choices for dates, in order of preference, should be written on the front of the envelope in the lower right-hand corner. The envelope should not contain a letter.
Lottery entries must be postmarked sometime from July 1 through July 31. A random drawing will be held during the first week in August. Winners will be notified by mail.
