    Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     lensmatrix stood on a glacier in Alaska's Wrangell-St. Elias National Park as he shot these photos. As he explored America's largest national park, he was overwhelmed by its vastness and raw beauty. "I was awestruck by the display of forces of nature and how we humans are so tiny and powerless in front of these forces," he says. His fifth image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for June 14, 2013.

    America's Largest National Park. At 13.2 million acres which is bigger than the country of Switzerland, Wrangell-St. Elias stretches from one of the tallest peaks in North America, Mount St. Elias (18,008) to the ocean. Yet within this wild landscape, people have been living off the land for centuries and still do today. The park is a rugged yet inviting place to experience your own adventure.
