The Wrangell Mountains.

The Wrangell Mountains, including Mt Drum, Mt Sanford, Mt Zanetti and Mt Wrangell, from Willow Lake, frozen over and ice covered in winter, Wrangell - St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Just got back into town for a brief respite, some catchup work, and I’ll try to post a few photos. This one from the trip home this afternoon. I think there is no grander vista in all of North America than the Wrangell Mountain Range from Willow Lake. I can’t think of another place where one can see so many really big mountains – all of these are over 12 000′, and haven’t included Mt Blackburn, a little to the south (right) which is 16 500′.

It was REALLY cold here, and is expected to get down to -37˚ F this evening, hence I took some photos and then jumped in my (heated) van and headed to Anchorage. But I’ll be back, soon.

For now, I’m headed to bed. I’ll write a catch up post tomorrow.

    I am sure the small JPEG doesn’t do the vastness of this area justice Carl, but still looks impressive. I remember not to complain about cold here too much when I think of -37!
