Arrigetch Peaks Mountain Range Gates Of The Arctic National Park

Fall hues highlight the landscape in the Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska, USA as the Arrigetch Peaks Mountain Range rise above.

As one travels through the Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska, USA, the scenery consists of rivers winding in and around the landscape, wildlife roaming free, glacier sculpted valleys and the unique granite walls of the Arrigetch Peaks Mountain Range.

In English, Arrigetch is translated to "fingers of a hand extended" from Inupiaq. This mountain range is a sub-range in the Central Brooks Range with granite spires and extreme angles characterizing each peak.

Weather plays an important factor in the Gates of the Arctic and hikers should be well prepared at all times as weather patterns can change very quickly. Many hikers come here for a three day adventure allowing plenty of time to explore the Arrigetch Peaks Mountain Range and the surrounding area of the Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska.
