A Fairweather Range mountainside appears to be unstable in this photo taken at the Canadian and United States border in Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park. Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park is located in the very northwestern corner of British Columbia, Canada. The park sits between Kluane National Park and Reserve in the Yukon and Glacier Bay and Wrangell-St. Elias National Parks and Preserves in Alaska. All together, they form the largest protected area in thew world, approximately 21 million acres. The Tatshenshini and Alsek Rivers are protected in their entirety making them the only large watershed in North America that is totally protected.
The remote park is known for its spectacular glacier and icefields, rafting and kayaking, hiking and mountaineering. Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park is home to grizzly bears, Dall's sheep, wolves, mountain goats, moose, eagles, falcons, and trumpeter swans.
The park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1994.
