    This accommodation just before McCarthy is first rate, they have a private double bedroom, bathroom, comfortable lounge, fully stocked kitchen with so many pots, pans & dishes (but no microwave thank goodness, it's real cooking here!) & in addition to the usual tea, milk etc there is decaf coffee beans as well as regular. Each cabin has 24/7 electricity & a deck with a gas bbq. Additionally the cabins are not situated right next to each other so you don't have to forgo your privacy. The owners are lovely people, full of local information & very helpful.
    If you ever go to the McCarthy area in the summer don't miss the opportunity to stay at Currant Ridge Cabins- they seriously are fabulous but make sure you book early as they are very popular.

    ... truly are the car of Alaska. We decided to indulge in breakfast at the historic Kennecott Glacier Lodge which was a buffet which in in Kramer-speak means gorge yourself and stuff a bunch of leftovers into plastic bags. The lodge itself was full of old advertisements and letters mostly from the 1930s. Many were hilarious and some were unsettling like the ad for Lysol, suggesting that men should advise women to use Lysol to clean their "sensitive areas." WTF?!

Oh, and to our kids delight most ...

    ... of our journey takes us 60 miles to the small town of McCarthy along a gravel road that is ominously "not suitable for large RVs." In fact, taking a rental RV is off paved roads violates the terms of the contract. Hmmmm. Nonetheless, after filling up our gas tank at the only gas station for 90 miles we set off.

    The road was indeed rough, but not worse that the roads we traversed in the outback of Australia 12 years ago. The road follows an old train route ...

It abuts Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park (5130 sq miles or 13 286 km2), as well as Canada’s vast Kluane National Park (8487 sq miles or 21980 km2) and Tatshenshini-Alsek Park (3700 sq miles or ...

    ... some up and down though. Saw one sloppy bear berry poop on the trail on the way to the glacier (right near the bear safe food lockbox hmmmm). Don't step in that! Damn.

    So we got to the end of the glacier which just looked like a pile of rock at this point. A large portion of the glacier looks like piles of rock but it's actually still ice underneath. Can be quite dangerous as the meltwater beneath means sections can cave in at any time. After school playtime in ...
