Alaska range

The Alaska Range of central Alaska includes Mount McKinley, at 6,194 m (20,320 ft) the highest peak in North America. This range rose because of the constant northwestward motion of the Pacific’s crust. The Pacific crust plunges beneath Alaska and presses the continental crust northwest and upward to form the mountains of the Alaska Range . A similar process has raised most of the mountains that surround the Pacific basin, including the Andes.
