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.

We learned how to go uphill (straight forward, legs somewhat apart, with a good stamp) and down dale (short steps with knees bent, feet close together) and surprised ourselves by not slipping once. The glacier is surprisingly un-flat we discovered. We enjoyed lunch on a ridge, watching the ice climbers three hundred yards away, who were hauling themselves up an ice cliff with ...
... to get out when it's light and you have to have a hobby. Wildlife sightings - one porcupine and one moose....a 'low' day! Lunch saw us visiting a preserved roadhouse and getting a feel for the hard lifestyle that the snow, cold and dark days brought in the early part of the 20th century. As we journeyed on the sun broke through and the scenery became more dramatic (see photo). We passed many cars towing boats - 'taking ...
... 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?!

While Tom played softball, Sue and the kids finished their swim and had dinner back at the RV. Once again we were surprised to discover that it was nearly 9pm. A quick book read and the kids were in bed, but had some difficulty falling asleep given that the campground was intermittently shooting off massive fireworks dispute the lack of darkness. Apparently at midnight ...
