Denali National Park and Mt. McKinley

Nestled deep in the Alaska Range is Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in the Americas rising to 20,320 feet. The first settlers making their way into the interior of Alaska encountered the native Athabaskans who named the peak 'Denali', meaning 'The Tall One'. On the approach, I remember eagerly hoping each snow capped peak would be Denali and learned that there is no mistaking it when you see it. Within the heart of Denali park now my lungs enjoy breathing some of the cleanest air in the world.
