Second best Fourth of July ever!!!

A travel blog entry by kramertown

It is somehow fitting that our 15th anniversary was celebrated hundreds of miles from anywhere and still ended up being epic. McCarthy Alaska put on a truly impressive Fourth of July celebration.

... there by a certain time or we'll miss our flight to McCarthy. Knowing Alaska's infinite love affair with roadworks we decided to give ourselves plenty of time.
