Kennicott Glacier Lodge
Travel Blogs from Kennicott
Vandaag reden we naar Kennicott. Een vergeten dorpje in de bergen. Toen we naar daar reden moesten we 5 km voor het hotel stoppen omdat er een voetgangersbrug de ene kant van de rivier met de andere verbond. Onze auto bleef na 80 km op onverharde weg staan op een parking. Daar gingen we, op weg naar een dorpje waar we niets van verwachtten. Toen we …
A day of activity today in Wrangell-St Elias NP - the remotest of remote places in Alaska. Julia & I are off for a hike on the glacier and Jeff is going ice climbing! He's a lot more adventurous than us girls.
Our glacier hike took about 5hrs, including a 2.5mile walk to the glacier, about 1mile on the glacier, and another 2.5mile …
Last night, Jeff got us to all go out at about 12.30am to see what he claims was a faint aurora. He reckons he could see two wavy green lines in the sky but Julia & I weren't convinced. So we MAY have seen an aurora ... but we're not sure.
Up early again the next morning and on the road by about 8:30am. Very different to my usual blog …

TravelPod Member ReviewsKennicott Glacier Lodge
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
