Description
English: Mt. Saint Elias: 19,500 Feet

Under the shadow of this great mountain, Bering's crew landed in July, 1741; they were the first white men to behold its sullen grandeur, and it fitly stands as the initial point of that early recognition of Russian America. In clear weather it is distinctly seen by mariners, 150 miles at sea; usually, however, it is wrapped in clouds .
