          ... glacier and backdrop of tall, snow-covered mountains and glaciers. The adrenalin-pumping moments were two-fold: the new bear paw prints and the glacier cave. On spotting the bear paw prints I renewed my efforts to shout, 'Hey bear' at very regular and frequent intervals. I was not keen to encounter a bear right then! On entering the amazing world of the glacier cave, whilst marvelling at the domed, ice roof I also became ...

          ... technique, and also rather fun as it is an action normally forbidden us now we are adults. The glacier was sheer white ice where we went on it, unlike the grey area covered with stones and gravel further down (moraine). There was a surprising amount of water running in streams, creating moulins (French for windmills) where the water plunges down into the ice in a whirlpool as it were sort of thing. Sorry, ...

          A big travel day today to get to Kennicott in the Wrangell-Elias National Park. It was raining and to amuse ourselves we had to 'read' the road map book.

Cheryl, our guide, told us what life was like in such short daylight times. ...

          By 9 we were back on the ground and the next group was ready to go up. They drove us to Kennecott from the air field. We noticed several planes had tents next to them which apparently were for people who had flown in to McCarthy for the ...

          Second best Fourth of July ever!!!

          A travel blog entry by kramertown on Jul 04, 2014

          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.
          Our day started with a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the local museum. Everyone in Alaska is so damn friendly! And people come from all around to come to McCarthy for Fourth of July. At noon the parade started complete with a ...
