Obama will rename the highest U.S. peak

Dropping McKinley for Denali.

America’s highest mountain, a household name and the answer to countless geography quiz questions, is about to get a new name, according to The Washington Post.

President Obama in Anchorage on Monday will announce the renaming of Mount McKinley, honoring the 25th president, to Mount Denali, an Athabascan name used by generations of Alaska Natives that means “the great one.”

The White House said Obama would rename the continent’s tallest peak in order to improve relations with Native Americans.
