Snowy Rugged Wrangell Peak
January 22, 2023
A stunning aerial scenic view of a steep
rugged peak with a heavy snow pack in its crevices and more northern
Wrangell Mountains in the background partially hidden by clouds in
the bright blue Alaskan sky.
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is a majestic scenic
experience ... magnified by splendid isolation. It is the largest U.S.
national park that equals six Yellowstones ... with peaks upon peaks and
glaciers after glaciers. Follow any braided river or stream to its source
and you will find either a receding, advancing, or tidewater glacier. The
park also lets you sample representative Alaska wildlife and historic mining
sites. Hike its mountains, float its rivers, ski its glaciers, or fly over
this landscape and you witness living geology.
The Wrangell Mountains are a high mountain range
of eastern Alaska with much of it in Wrangell-Saint Elias National
Park and Preserve. The Wrangell Mountains are almost entirely
volcanic in origin that include the second and third highest
volcanoes in the United States, Mount Blackburn and Mount Sanford.
The Wrangell Mountains comprise most of the Wrangell Volcanic Field,
which also extends into the neighboring Saint Elias Mountains and
the Yukon Territory in Canada.
