If you’ve ever been to Yellowstone, you know how incredibly vast it seems. Would you believe that the largest national park in the U.S. is almost six times that size?
What’s so special about this place? Lots of things. Here’s a taste of what you can see and do at Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.
The NPS says more than $200 million in copper came from Kennecott from 1911 to 1930. That place is a historic landmark now, but it’s an exception.
According to the NPS, the park is home to the highest concentration of Dall sheep in North America – some 13,000 sheep, in fact.
With such high elevation and almost zero light pollution, this area is sometimes great for stargazing. The keyword is “sometimes,” though.
