Denali National Park and Preserve is located in interior Alaska. The Park and Preserve are two separate national park service units that are managed together. They had slightly different rules and regulations but for the most part are one in the same. The units are named for the great mountain in the park. Denali stands at 20,320 feet and is the highest mountain in North America. The park was founded to protect the Dall sheep and their ecosystem from overhunting.

Jennifer has been obsessed with national parks as a child. This Tennessee native spent her childhood exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and traveling with her parents to National Parks and around the Caribbean. She is always planning her next adventure and is ready to see the world while trying to visit all 59 National Park (*She is ignoring the hunk of concrete that just became a national park).
