A GHOST TOWN TO YOURSELF?? We are opening May 15th and have 8 private hotel sections, each with private bath available in 2020. Our normal capacity of 30 rooms is reduced to 8 "sections". Each room will have at least 72 hours between guest occupancies. Separate entrances, Private Bath, and NO CONTACT check in and out. - Fun includes fantastic food experiences in - With 13 million acres, and few guest sections instead of rooms (think 2 couples per floor instead of 10 couples per floor) - distances will accentuate the Ghost Town feel!

McCarthy Road is now open for public travel and will receive regular seasonal maintenance through October 1 of this year. Make sure to be prepared with emergency supplies and extra gear when traveling on this (or any other) remote road. More info: https://bit.ly/35m9UmU

Thirteen years in the making, I am thrilled to announce that my latest adventure novel, Jaspa’s Journey 4: The Hermit of Kennecott, is now published and available on Amazon! The timing of the release is kind of spooky... when one of my friends comes down with a Ses variant of Spanish Flu (the last pandemic to have such a massive effect on the whole world) whilst on an adventure in Alaska, we head off into the Alaskan wilderness in search of a cure.

Kennicott Wilderness Guides

“Every individual has within their abilities the capability of accomplishing extraordinary things. They just have to learn how to do it”
Brian Tracy
.
Few people come to us already knowing how to ice climb. Some may be avid climbers, with a lifetime of experience on rock, and never held an ice axe. Some put on a harness for the first time at our office. For everyone, the joy that accompanies learning and accomplishing a new skill is extraordinary. The view isn’t too bad from the top either!

What could you possibly do in such a remote place as ours?

What could you possibly do in such a remote place as ours?

Some of the most amazing scenery in the world is right out our back door in the Kennicott Valley. Not that it is easy to get to however! Backpacking across the Kennicott Glacier is not for the unprepared. But if you take on the journey you’ll be rewarded by scenes of unimaginable beauty, like this one captured by client @chrisranieripics on our Glacier & Tundra trip in 2017. Thanks for sharing Chris!
