Alaska is a land of superlatives. It�s the largest state and home to America�s largest national park, Wrangell-St Elias National Park & Preserve where you can experience genuine "Wild Alaska" on its own terms with very few fellow travelers. Nabesna - Northwest Road Access: From Slana to Nabesna this primitive road traverses the headwaters country of the Copper & Tanana drainages. Subsistence Fishing On The Copper River: Famous for it�s sockeye salmon, the Copper River offers a terrific cultural experience as Alaskans subsistence fish for salmon with traditional dip nets or fish wheels. Driving The McCarthy Road, an Alaskan adventure! Pushing east across 60 miles of America�s most remote landscapes & homesteads, leads to the greatest concentration of North American peaks over 16,000 feet, the biggest glaciers on the continent, and the largest concentration of volcanoes. At the end, a foot bridge across the Kennicott River allows you to hike or take shuttles to the very last intact bush community still inside a National Park, McCarthy and 5 miles beyond, the Kennecott Copper Mill townsite. Kennecott National Historic Landmark: This mine is the reason anything exists at all in this corner of Alaska. Kennecott Copper Mill is the tallest wooden structure in North America where over $200 million dollars worth of copper ore helped put Kennecott on the map. Kennecott�s Sister Town Of McCarthy: A perfect way to end a perfect day of exploration in this remote Alaskan village. Extras: McCarthy Museum & Bush Alaska Insights.
