    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

    A new noun / verb: Flight See

    A travel blog entry by kramertown on Jul 05, 2014

    After much deliberation we decided to go ahead with our 8am Flight See, a sight seeing tour but from a plane. It had been recommended as "the one thing you must do" assuming the weather is clear. There were a few clouds but Tom really wanted to go for it so we did. It was truly impressive. We were up for 50 minutes and from the air glaciers are even more impressive as you can grasp their immense size. And while we thought there was just one glacier at Kennecott, it turns ...

    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 ...

    ... built 100 years ago to service one of the largest copper mines in the world. The route, like most roads in Alaska was jaw droppingly beautiful. We made sure to travel well below the 35 mph speed limit and almost 3 hours after we left we arrived at the end of the road, 1/2 mile from McCarthy, 5 miles from the abandoned mining town of Kennicott, and directly below the Kennicott glacier and the 16,000ft Mount Blackburn.

    ... park to do our first adventure. Murray, Alex and I decided on the half day glacier hike and the Copper mill tour. The other guys more brave and went for the full day ice climb and glacier hike. We split up and got fitted up for the ice clampers for over our shoes and put them away into our bags. We hiked about 2 miles to get the the edge of the glacier. Fitted on our clampers and started the slow accent to get on top of the ice. It felt so weird. The view around ...

    ... Armed with a good single malt whiskey and two cut-glass tumblers we set off in search of ice to complete her birthday.

    Despite its vast size, the park has only two roads totalling just 100 miles – the most famous of these leads to McCarthy and the nearby long-defunct Kennecott Copper mine and township. One of the richest copper ore deposits in the world, Kennecott was discovered in 1900 by prospectors who saw a large green ...
