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.
The 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.
