Denali, Alaska

Denali Alaska is  the highest Peak in the North America. It is located near the centre of the Alaska Range, with two summits rising above the Denali Fault, in south-central Alaska, U.S.  Denali lies about 130 miles (210 km) north-northwest of Anchorage .

The first attempt to climb it was made in 1903 by an American judge, James Wickersham, but it was unsuccessful. It was called Densmore’s Mountain in 1889 by Frank Densmore, a prospector. The name Mount McKinley was applied in 1896 by William A.  it is absolutely tremendous, a snow-covered leviathan poised above many other high mountains that look like foothills by comparison.

Use of the name Denali for the mountain became increasingly common, and in 2015 it was officially renamed Denali. Standing in the shadow of this mountain, you will feel as if you are in the presence of a mighty god.
