National Park Service: Junior Ranger Online - Wrangell Mountains from Park Headquarters (Wrangell - St Elias National Park & Preserve)

This is the view from our Visitor Center at Park Headquarters in Copper Center, looking east across the Copper River Valley to the Wrangell Mountains.

From this vantage point, Mt. Drum (12,010 ft) and Mt. Sanford (16,237 ft) are visible. Watch the colors in this scene change throughout the seasons: the brilliant yellows and golds of the aspens in the fall, followed by stark white snows and pink mountain alpenglow during the cold days of winter, and then the greening of the whole landscape as the days warm and lengthen in the springtime.
