    It is Alaska's Denali at 20,320 feet. Here in Alaska, it is not referred to as Mount McKinley. We prefer the Native name (which means "the great one") over the imperialistic one named after a stupid president who never set foot in Alaska. In the Lower 48 states the highest peak is Mount Whitney, which is now officially 14,505 feet. It was previously thought to be 14,494 feet, a height given to it in 1929. However since then, the exact shape of the Earth has become better estimated, and a new coordinate system has been established.
