    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

    ... 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. ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... but we had a long way up before we could see it all. I felt like I was walking on the moon. It was so surreal. We saw the blue pools of water and the waterfalls that run down inside the glacier. We had lunch and mulled cider at the top. Non alcoholic though don't worry. We saw a rainbow which did a full circle around the sun. Amazing. We made our way back and stopped for a drink before the tour in the afternoon. It was a pretty sweaty experience because it ...

By 1939 the green patch and massive underground deposit were exhausted and the abandoned township, sited alongside the majestic Kennicott Glacier, is now a national monument. The railroad established to ship out the ore is now the infamous "McCarthy Road".

    The town of McCarthy, 5 miles down the valley from Kennecott, grew out of a trading post that supported the early prospectors and provided a ...
