If you were to ask people to name a mountain range in the United States, most people would say the Rocky Mountains, or maybe the Appalachian Mountains, or even the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In fact, if you do a Google search on “mountain ranges in the untied states”, you’ll find that most people only list those three ranges.
However, there are however other mountain ranges that most people forget. One of the ranges is unknown because on a small fraction of Americans have ever laid eyes on it. It is the Brooks Mountains in Northern Alaska.
The Brooks Range is home to Gates of the Arctic National Park, which is the northernmost and one of the least visited national parks in America. It is also has some of the most stunning scenery of any national park in the country.
The only way to really visit the park is by float plane as there are no roads, trails, campsites, or visitor centers inside the park boundaries. ⠀⠀
