Originally established as Mount McKinley National Park in 1917, at only a fraction of the size designated today, the park was set up to protect Dall sheep native to the area. Included in the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980, Denali National Park and Preserve was expanded and renamed to reflect the Native Athabascan language.
Today the park encompasses more than 6 million acres, centered around Mount McKinley; standing 20,237 feet.

Despite the lack of wildlife in the pin, the view of Denali is one we never got to see because of the clouds. Love it. You'll like the color contrasts and clear text on this pin.
