Denali National Park Alaska
For centuries, the Athabascans of central Alaska looked up at this 20,320-foot mountain and called it Denali, ‘the Great One’. Then, in 1896, businessman-turned-prospector William Dickey rechristened it in honor of President William McKinley, who hailed from Ohio and had never set foot in Alaska. That’s never sat well with a lot of Alaskans. But whatever you call the mountain, its grandeur transcends any language.
