The Red City
Minas Tirith-y don't you think? Gah I'm such a nerd!
Man we used to be pretty impressive! Look what man was able to build! Doesn't beat nature but still impressive engineering.
The WSE workers are working overtime to get the mill back to its former glory
The town of Kennicott is a big tourism spot...I enjoyed the walk through the town on my way out of the back country.
Only one way across this river and it ain't wading.
I had to pull over to take a look at this serene landscape. Massive but peaceful
Leaving Kennicott and McCarthy behind me I cross the bridge to return to my car that is hopefully still there.
The Pot Hole
You can see the "Paid Thru" paper on my dash. A real official way of handling parking down here in McCarthy.
The grass was so golden, long, and wet. It had a shiny glow to it while I drove passed it. Driving through a sea of liquid gold.
It didn't matter where you stopped, there was always a surprise on the side of the road.
Nothing about Alaska is unnatural. Wrangell - St. Elias National Park is no exception.
Life Of A Pothole
The McCarthy Road was a 60 mile stretch of potholes. Some worse than others but all bad!
The return trip along the McCarthy Road didn't seem so bad. Maybe thats just because I was more alert or became more evasive in my driving.
As far as mountains go, these two have it made in the shade. It wouldn't be so bad being stuck here for eternity if I had this tranquil landscape to ponder over.
Yeah I could stay here forever. I was in no rush. The days were long and my only time demand was to return the car by the end of the day.
