The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve encompasses 13.2 million acres of some of the most dramatic mountainous wilderness in the world. There are really only two public access roads that enter the edge of this large area, the Nabesna Road into the northwest corner and the McCarthy-Kennicott Road into the southwest corner. We first spent two days exploring along the Nabesna Road.
A light overnight snow blanketed the peaks with a fresh covering.
