Up, up and away! Some mountains are pretty tall. What was the biggest one you’ve ever seen? Where was it located?
The highest point in North America is part of Mount McKinley, which is located in Alaska. Mount McKinley’s highest peak is 20,320 feet. – That means the highest part of Mount McKinley is taller than thirteen Empire State Buildings stacked on top of each other!!
By comparison, Mount Everest (which has the highest altitude of any mountain in the world) is 29,028 feet. That means Mount McKinley is about six Empire State Buildings shorter than the Great Giant of Mount Everest!
