"Mt Eielson Area" Top 5 Page for this destination Mountains/ Viewpoints Tip by mrclay2000

  canyons at the foot of Mt Eielson and neighbors
by mrclay2000

Once called Copper Mountain for the mining that occurred here, Mt Eielson and its vicinity provide a breathtaking range of Denali's features. Mt Eielson itself is furrowed with billows of snow that almost run down to the small cabins still standing at its foot. In the same general view are several glaciers and other peaks of the Alaska Range, all with similar but unique characteristics. Between the visitor center and the distant range is the Thorofare River valley, but at the foot of the range are several canyons carved by tiny glacial streams all running out of the various glaciers to join the Thorofare.
