Alaska

Denali, the "High One," is the name Athabascan native people gave the massive peak that crowns the 600-mile-long Alaska Range. Denali is also the name of an immense national park and preserve created from the former Mount McKinley National Park. The changes in names and boundaries that have occurred over the years can be confusing, as they indicate the way various parts of the park and preserve may be used today. In 1917 Mount McKinley National Park was established as a wildlife refuge. It remains largely wild and unspoiled, as the Athabascans knew it. It exemplifies interior Alaska's character as one of the world's last great frontiers for wilderness adventure, which is why I visited the area.
