"How do you describe something as majestic as what we flew through? That's the thing. I don't really have the words for it." Join Alaskan bush pilot, Lynn Ellis in breathtaking Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the largest protected wilderness in America.

Wrangell-Saint Elias Wilderness protects over 9 million acres of steep mountains, winding rivers, glaciated valleys, and countless wildlife species. He has been flying in these mountains since he was 16 years old and has a unique and intimate connection with the land. He now brings his years of knowledge to the National Park Service, providing access for the biologists and rangers that care for this special place.
