Where in the World is Gary? #72

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#71) is the Caribbean island of Dominica

Where in the World is Gary?  #72

Latitude — 63º 20′ North

Longitude — 150º 30′ West

This place has two names: one is a Native American name which has become more common recently; it was also named for an American president. This place contains the highest peak in North America; it makes its own weather so is often obscured by clouds.

This place rises more than 18,000 feet from its base so appears higher than Mt Everest which rises only 12,000 feet from its base. This place is true wilderness so wildlife sightings are extremely common.

It is unusual to see the mountain without clouds obscuring it. The photo below is from 50 miles north of this place.
