Yellowstone's Craggy Face
Photograph by José Azel

Nearly 11,000 feet (3,400 meters) tall, imposing Abiathar Peak forms the southern wall of Ice Box Canyon in northeastern Yellowstone. In 1885 the mountain was named for Charles Abiathar White, a paleontologist with the U.S. Geological Survey. Much of Yellowstone is a plateau ranging from 7,000 to 9,000 feet (2,000 to 3,000 meters). Its loftiest summit, Eagle Peak, rises 11,358 feet (3,461 meters) in Yellowstone's southeast corner.
