Alaska Senator has introduced legislation to rename Mount McKinley to Mount Denail and to rename the Talkeetna Ranger Station for Walter Harper who is the first credited climber of the mountain. Legislation to rename the mountain has been introduced for years and has been successfully fought by the Ohio delegation.
