Today we are camped on the banks of the cold and grey glacial Kennicott River just outside ofMcCarthy. The town is featured on Discovery Channel’s “Edge of Alaska” reality show. The 29 full time residents don’t like tourist traffic so we had to park on the opposite side of the river and walk a mile into town. We did walk but there is a shuttle that runs every half hour between the bridge and town. We paid $20 to dry camp along the river near the pedestrian bridge. It is beautiful here at the foot if the Root Glacier. I keep saying that but it’s true. Every place in Alaska is beautiful.
