Big news week for North America's highest mountain. Not only did President Obama restore the name to the native "Denali," but the USGS has now adopted an official new elevation of 20,310.

New survey rejects the 20,237 measurement of a couple of years ago and was actually being conducted while I was on the mountain in June.
