Denali National Park
Mount McKinley, or Denali (“The High One” in its Athabascan name), dominates central Alaska, rising impressively to an elevation of 20,320 feet. Mount McKinley is the highest peak in North America. Today, many visitors do not realize that it wasn’t Mount McKinley that attracted the attention of naturalist, hunter, conservationist, and park advocate Charles Sheldon in 1907, but what lived around it. Sheldon’s vision for a national park became a reality in 1917 and today we can all enjoy the habitat permanently preserved for caribou, wolves, moose, Dall’s sheep, bears, and other animals and plants that make their home in Denali National Park and Preserve.
