Day Eight: Mount McKinley

Day Eight: Mount McKinley

Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app.

Day eight is Mount McKinley.


“Mount McKinley is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,237 feet (6,168 m) above sea level. At some 18,000 feet (5,500 m), the base to peak rise is considered the largest of any mountain situated entirely above sea level.

Mount McKinley is commonly referred to by its Koyukon Athabaskan name Denali, especially by Alaskans, mountaineers, and Alaska Natives. Other names include Dghelay Ka'a, Dghelaay Ce'e, Dinadhit, Deenaalee, Denaze, Denadhe, and Dengadhiy.

During the Russian ownership of Alaska, the common name for the mountain was Bol`sháya Gorá ("big mountain").”
