Mount Logan

At 5,959 meters (19,486 feet), Mount Logan is Canada's highest mountain. It is located in the Yukon, and was named after Sir William Edmond Logan, a Canadian geologist.

Following the death of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, the Chrétien government considered renaming the mountain Mount Trudeau; however, this faced opposition from Yukoners and mountaineers, and the plan was dropped.
