Pick Up Spot
Waiting with some McCarthy locals for a ride into the park. Teenage girls have the same gossip topics no matter where you are...
Not Much To It
A simple hut for a simple purpose. Just waiting...
I slept in my car on the far end of this bridge. Pitch darkness.
Under the Boardwalk
Hard core bridge. Bred for one purpose.
YOU SHALL NOT PASS
I was now on an irreversible path towards Wrangell - St. Elias' backcountry
Old Timey Mining
The equipment of this coppermine may be old and rusted but its history still shines
Wheels Of Industry
No apps to do your work back in those days.
If Ransome is still a company...
When the Kennicott Mine shut down, the place was abandoned left to rust.
Remnants of a lost age. Barrels left for time to forget. Glad someone found them again.
I bet there is a good story here. Who stacked these? Last night in Kennicott ritual perhaps?
The highest portion of the Kennicott Mining facility. A truly massive structure.
The Lower Bastion
Like I said...a huge operation.
Beyond the Mine
The mine town was impressive but I was more interested in what lay beyond its reach.
The NPS is making progress in sprucing up the old facilities but they certainly still have their work cut out for them.
