Old Glory Waves On USA's Tallest Mountain
November 9, 2020
Denali (also known as Mount McKinley, its former official name) ... North America’s tallest mountain at 20,310 feet stands majestically in the clear blue skies of Alaska ... as Old Glory proudly waves in the foreground at Denali National Park and Preserve's Eielson Visitor Center.
Denali National Park and Preserve has been a mecca for mountaineering and adventuring for more than a century. Today, the 6 million acre park continues to enchant climbers, pack-rafters, skiers, dog mushers and athletes seeking to test themselves against the raw, unchecked power of a truly wild landscape. Trails in the park are near the park road, and mainly near the park entrance. However, Denali offers visitors a rare opportunity to hike off trail in a wild landscape.
