    To Worthington Glacier

    August 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    Followed the glacier-fed streams through Keystone Canyon, a canyon road blasted through the rock which was built to find a way to the goldfields. An attempt at building a railroad has been abandoned. The road climbs to nearly 3,000 feet over Thompson Pass where there are road work delays. Freshly fallen snow lies across on the peaks and upper slopes.

    We arrive at Worthington Glacier, named after a gold miner who blasted the glacier looking for gold to no avail. We take the uneven track right up to the glacier. Our first 'long drop' experience in Alaska s OK because it's maintained by national parks.

    Wrangell-St Elias National Park

    August 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    This very large wilderness area comprises the Wrangell and St Elias Ranges. We visit the NP visitors centre for a quick stop. This is America's largest national park.

    The Wrangells are still active volcanoes but have been eroded by the numerous glaciers around them.

    The St Elias Range is still growing as the Pacific Plate pushes up the North Atlantic Plate along the tectonic plate line. This range is very high and jagged with many active glaciers.

    The mountains are surrounded by a huge glacial flood plain. The Copper River winds its way through the sparse, stunted forest and swampland. We pick up a picnic lunch at Glennallen and eat it overlooking the Copper River.

    The national park is a true wilderness with no road through it; only 2 highways going around it. The extreme weather conditions are difficult for both wildlife and the few people who live in this area. There are mostly hunting and fishing cabins with no running water or power. Being summer, there is lots of work on the roads and we are held up lots.

    Flight Over Wrangell-St. Elias

    June 1, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    At 5 PM Jared took us, along with a couple from Sumter, S.C., Rob and Courtney, to Copper River Aviation. Our pilot, Alex, packed us into an old Cessna 185 and showed us some wonderful sights during a very bumpy ride. I got some great photos. Glenda found the motion of the airplane very unsettling, so she decided to miss supper. I was still full from the chili at lunch, so I didn't mind. At 8:30 PM there was an evening retreat ceremony ay the flag pole. Only about half a dozen people were there. Two of us were veterans, and both of us were given a small U. S. flag as a token of gratitude for our service. It was very cold and the wind was blowing hardRead more

    Copper River Wilderness

    June 2, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 45 °F

    We went on an ATV excursion from the Princes Copper River Lodge along the Klutina River with Carrie, our driver. The scenery was wonderful but the weather was horrible. As we started the rain began. After 20 minutes, the rain stopped and the sun came out and the temperature warmed up. We went through four cycles of cold rain and warm sun when Glenda saw in the distance "beautiful dark blue sky against the powdery white cliffs.” She asked me to photograph the scene, and as I did so, I realized the the "dark blue" was actually an intense rain storm. After a few minutes Carrie commented the the storm was really dumping on the lodge, and the we were heading right into it. About that time we felt the temperature drop about 10 degrees into the high 30’s and heavy rain started. However, within just a couple of seconds it turned into pea-sized hail. We finally made it back to the lodge. Glenda took a warm bath to wash off the mud, and we went to the bar and had a nice glass of wine and a plate of bread and butter.Read more
