Denali

is a double-headed mountain in 

Alaska

, the highest mountain in North America. It is located in the heart of Denali National Park and Preserve and is 20,321 feet (6194 meters) tall. Originally, it was named in honor of the 25th President of the United States William McKinley, but was later renamed.
From 1799 to 1867, Denali was the highest point of the Russian Empire until Alaska sold the territory to the United States.
When the mountain was still the territory of Russia, it was called "Big Mountain" as a sign of respect to its size and the indigenous people, the Athabaskan Indian tribe, named the peak "Denali", which means "The Great".
