Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve

Wrangell St Elias National Park and Preserve Wilderness Aerial ---- Photo (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelSeeing the raw and wild mountains of Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve on my flight back to Juneau rekindled my desire to climb big mountains. I was fortunate to climb Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan, several years ago. Mount Logan (5,959 m/19,551 feet) is located adjacent to this epic mountain world. I would love to explore one day some of the Alaskan peaks in this mountain range of Himalayan proportions.

Wrangell-St. Elias Mountain Ranges

Wiewed from 30,000 feet, the Wrangell-St.Elias mountains look like little bumps on the glaciated landscape, however when viewed from the ground they are enormous. Below is an aerial view of the two highest peaks in the range, Mount St. Elias, elevation 18,008 feet, in the foreground, and Mount Logan, elevation 19,551. Mount Logan is believed to have the largest base circumference of any non-volcanic mountain on Earth, with the massif containing eleven peaks over 16,400 ft.
