    I stayed with the great folks @ Kennicott over Memorial Day weekend 2010 and it was AWESOME! Since it was early in the season, the lodge was not crowded. I used the meal plan which was great especially the sack lunch they prepared for me the day I went hiking all day. If I ever get the chance, I'll definitely get out there again

    ... the glacier. Finally we picked up the wagon trail (my word what easy walking after the 'off piste' adventure) for the last half mile into McCarthy, a small one street place with a dirt track as a main road, no pavements and no cars... yet with great ice cream (huckleberry heaven was sampled). I passed on the swimming hall (glacier water swimming pool) due to lack of bathers and made my way back in the shuttle bus. A memorable ...

    ... in each hand. Tough stuff! Our legs were tired enough by the time we got back without any of that hanging by the arms. You can try it if you wish, gentle reader, but we won't. Early evening saw me, Jennie, having a one-on-one guided tour of Kennicott with the Park Ranger (no-one else showed up). Kennicott was the centre of a highly profitable copper extraction business in the early part of the 20th century ...

    ... we stopped at the ranger station for a great short film on the Kennecott mines whose development was funded by JP Morgan and Mr. Guggenheim. Copper was discovered around 1900 and from 1906-1911 they constructed a 200 mile railroad, built a power plant, and an 11 story mill to process the copper ore which was then transported to Tacoma for smelting. In order to get the supplies needed to build the rail road they had to transport the materials by steamship up river. ...

    Second best Fourth of July ever!!!

    ... bombs will be going off, but we hope to miss them.
    The weather has been spectacular and we have heard that it rained for almost 2 weeks before we arrived, so we are counting our lucky stars.
    Speaking of stars, none of us knew that the Alaskan flag is the Big Dipper pointing to the North Star. Appropriate I'm sure, even though we have yet to see a single star not including the abundant sun. Thank goodness for eyepatches!,

    ... river we decided to walk 1/2 mile to McCarthy to explore. As the sign says "what happened in McCarthy stayed in McCarthy" and the town appears much as it did 100 years ago and its remote nature seems to be keeping it that way. Accessible only by foot, ATV, or local shuttle the town has surprisingly good ice cream and a Michelin rated restaurant.

    And apparently we arrived just in time as the town swells on the Fourth of July as people come for the ...
