Everything you always wanted to know about Alaska but were afraid to ask. Part-8

National Parklands:

Over half of this country’s parkland is in Alaska. Alaska has over 52 million acres of National Parkland broken up into 11 National Parks of which 2/3rds have been designated as wilderness. Nine of these parks are substantially bigger than Yellowstone.

The largest National Park is Wrangell St. Elias weighing in at 13 million acres. Wrangell St. Elias is home to the third tallest peak in North America, Mount St. Elias, which rises to over 18,000 feet. It is also home to one of the world’s largest glaciers, the Malspina.
