Cycle & trek to Root Glacier

A travel blog entry by mazb10


I was late getting up again, the sheets were incredible & I just wanted to stay where I was, all warm & cozy. I had heard Tanya come in much earlier & then go off to work but turned over & fell asleep again - bliss!

I eventually got up about 10am & went to work on my laptop. Adam, another helper here, came in. He'd …

Chillin' out

A travel blog entry by mazb10


I made the most of this delightful cabin & stayed in bed till late & when I finally shook my lazy bum out of bed I made a coffee & sat on the sofa editing my photos for about 3 hours.

I went off to find Tanya about 1pm to help her with preparing the remaining cabins for the new guests who were due to check in later in the …

Museums & drive to McCarthy

A travel blog entry by mazb10


When I got up Tanya was busily looking for her wallet but couldn't find it so decided to drive out to where we had stopped last night when she checked under the van for the awful noise it was making. She returned about half an hour later, she didn't find her wallet on the road but went to the police station & someone had handed it in totally …

Oh, and to our kids delight most ...

The Alaskan Trek America Adventure

... to prepare for 6 nights camping. In the morning we meet everyone in the lobby. There was 6 of us and Charlie our guide. We do the paper work and awkward silences and get on the road to McCarthy. We stop at Walmart on the way for camp supplies. Our first experience of Walmart. Murray got some super cool cargo pants and little bits, like bug spray. Probably best thing I have ever bought. We also eventually had enough food for the week other than a couple of things. We ...

    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.
