Lower Twin Lake Among Mountains
February 3, 2021
Majestic aerial view of Lower Twin Lake nestled behind the rust colored Neacola Mountains in the Lake Clark National Park and Preserve.
The Neacola Mountains are the northernmost subrange of the Aleutian Range in the U.S. state of Alaska. The range is named for the Neacola River which bounds it to the north and drains the highest and most rugged peaks of the group. They are bordered on the southeast by the Chigmit Mountains, another subrange of the Aleutian Range, on the northeast by the Tordrillo Mountains, and on the west and southwest by the lakes and lowlands of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. The highest peak is Mount Neacola, 9,426 feet although the name is not officially recognized.
Comprised of 4 million acres on the Alaska Peninsula in southwest Alaska, Lake Clark National Park and Preserve is a land of stunning beauty ... and one of the nation's most remote national park units. Volcanoes steam, salmon run, bears forage, and craggy mountains reflect in shimmering turquoise lakes. Lake Clark offers excellent opportunities for adventure, exploration, learning, and just plain having fun.
