Mt Logan is so big it doesn’t even look like a mountain. it just looks like a big long ridge.

And yes, technically, it’s not inside Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. But I was when I shot this photo.

Logan is believed to have the largest base circumference of any non-volcanic mountain on the planet. It’s so broad. And at 19 551′ ASL, it’s pretty arn tall, too. The 2nd highest mountain in North America. And still growing, due the powerful tectonic activity in the area.
