One day in the summer of 2000 a group of teenagers set out on a program called Visions. With Visions they did community service in the small Mentasta Lake Community in the middle of Alaska. Interspersed with the community service was adventure, and one weekend about half the group set out to the Wrangell-St. Elias national park for a backpacking trip. We disembarked from the van and started on our trip, we backpacked around 9 or so miles the first day and set up our camp along Lost Creek. Then on the second day we decided to summit a nearby mountain. We fought up the mountain and about half the groups stayed halfway down. As we plodded towards the summit our friends down below cheered us on. Upon reaching the summit we saw one of most beautiful things any of us had very seen. Miles and miles of pristine land untouched my man. After a few minutes at the summit we returned back down, and the next day hiked out. When we returned we named the mountain using the first letters of all of the summiteers names we derived Mount Mend Carp and from our group Visions Peak.
