Wrangell Mountains Comments

|Please give a bit larger-scale geographic overview for those of us who would need a long time to find Chitina and Slana on a map. What part of Alaska are we talking about? Talk about where this range fits in: is it part of a larger mountain system; what other ranges are nearby, and how this range compares. Any geological tidbits would be welcome too. On a related note, you list the latitude and longitude for this range as being near Yuma, Arizona.|
You should attach, as children of this page, the SP pages for mountains in this range.
You've got too many large photos for my taste - so many you seem not to have noticed that you've got two sections titled "Weather".
For an area approaching Switzerland in size there ought to be more to say. Do different parts of the range have differing characters? I'm also surprised that your Getting There section is so brief. Is there really only one road anywhere near it?
As many serious mountaineers will be travelling to Alaska by air, you might want to mention the nearest major airports and include what you can about car rental, shuttle buses, and any other modes of travel.
Can you provide a map? (hint: maps produced by the USGS are in the public domain.)
Despite my numerous criticisms, most of the essentials for a good page are in place.

|Yes, this section is still under construction, I now have some admin privileges so I will continue to add more information as I find time. Thanks for the input!|

|The page is basically finished now ;)|

|An excellent page now! One final suggestion is to add another sentence or two (and/or maybe a small relief map) to more clearly distinguish/compare/delineate this range from its neighbors, particularly the St Elias range within the same park. Is Chitistone Pass the boundary with the St Elias?|

|Just wanted to let you know the links to Mt Sanford take you to a deleted page.|

|Thanks, apparently the page was detached due to poor quality.|

|Just thought I would let you know Mount Wood is not part of the Wrangell Mountains and is considered part of the St. Elias Range. Also Atna Peaks 13860' and Parka Peak 13280' could be added to the list. I am not sure what the criteria you are using for a peak to make this list.|

|Thanks for this page. FYI, the link from the U.S. National Parks page was broken, so I've replaced it with this one. Also, in the description of the drive out to Nabesna, you might mention that once you pass the small airport in Nabesna there is a parking lot. Past that parking lot the road is not maintained. I drove it a few weeks ago and would not recommend it for anyone who doesn't have high clearance and four wheel drive. Or anyone who cares about their vehicle paint being scratched up by brush on both sides. At the end, four miles further, is Nabesna mine. Not nearly as impressive as that at Kennecott, but we had the mine completely to ourselves. If interested, there are a few images of the area in this public album on FB (you'll have to scroll down) ...|
