Info. Kluane National Park, Canada
We're looking at Kaskawulsh Glacier, a large valley glacier in the Saint Elias Mountains, within Kluane National Park and Reserve in the Canadian territory of Yukon. This corner of the Yukon is home to the largest ice field on Earth outside of the poles, with the slow, steady flow of more than 2,000 glaciers continually carving these vast canyons amid the peaks.
Kluane National Park and Reserve is also home to Mount Logan, the highest mountain in Canada with an elevation of 5,959 metres (and second-highest in North America after Denali in Alaska).
