Mount Logan: highest point in Canada
Location: (140o 23' W, 60o 34' N)
Height: 5959 m

Standing 5,959 metres high at its peak, Mount Logan is second only to Alaska’s Mount McKinley as the tallest mountain in North America. But maybe not for long; due to tectonic shifts, the mountain is on the rise. Situated inside the scenic Kluane National Park and Reserve, it’s a breathtaking sight to behold. But if you go to see it in person, bring mittens: temperatures have dipped as low as –77.5 C, the coldest recorded temperature in the world outside Antarctica.
