You will find Bear feeding on berry's and probably see some deer along the shore line.
I don't know, as a tourist the Denali Highway isn't such a good idea, they can start getting snow that time of the year and rental cars normally don't have snow tires and if you get snowed in, you are stuck because they don't plow the road out after Sept. 15 if I recall the dates correctly, (maybe October 1st or the 15th). Then there is the issue that most rental cars have a clause that the car is not allowed off the paved road system, IE the Haul Road and Denali Highway. At least on the Haul road if snow starts, the State Plows that year round.
