Where in the World is Gary? #73

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 (#72) is Denali (Mount McKinley) National Park, Alaska, USA

It is located on the banks of the Columbia River. This place was originally called Farwell and it once had over 80 feet of snow in a winter, a record for its country. Entrance to the town is through an adorable plaza.
