Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 6,190m. The Koyukon people who inhabit the area have referred to the peak as “Denali” for centuries. In 1896, a gold prospector named it “Mount McKinley” in support of then-presidential candidate William McKinley. In 2015, the U.S. government announced the change of the official name of the mountain to Denali.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
