Mount Saint Elias
Mount Saint Elias is the second highest mountain in both the United States and Canada on the Yukon and Alaska border. It lies about 25 miles southwest of Mount Logan, the highest mountain in Canada. The Canadian side is part of Kluane National Park, while the U.S. side of the mountain is located within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Mount Saint Elias is notable for being the highest peak in the world that is so close to tidewater; its summit rises only 10 miles from the head of Taan Fjord, off of Icy Bay. This gives the peak immense vertical relief, comparable to that of Denali or peaks in the Himalayas.
