Wrangell Mountains

The Wrangell Mountains are located in southeast Alaska, and are a northern extension of the Saint Elias Mountains. The high Wrangell peaks rise above an immense snowy wilderness, and average around 12,000 feet in elevation. The region is best known, however, for a few peaks which are considerably higher than average, including Mount Blackburn (16,390 ft.), the highest summit, and the neighboring volcanoes Mounts Sanford (16,237 ft.) and Wrangell (14,163 ft.).  The Wrangells are considered technically to be the easiest major summits in Alaska, though they are serious mountains requiring long expeditionary approaches in often challenging weather.
