Base Camp Kennicott – Alaska

After being in Valdez for over a week, we moved to Waterworks RV Park in Glennallen, Alaska.  On the way, we saw a moose in a lake, cooling off in the water.

Six days later, we moved to Base Camp Kennicott, in McCarthy, Alaska.  We stayed there for two days.  Daddy and my brothers hiked to Root Glacier from the campgrounds (but took a shuttle part of the way).  They passed through a historic town called Kennicott Mill Town, and hiked about 4 miles.  It was difficult, because parts were steep.  There were lots of small waterfalls on the way, and it was hot, even on the glacier.

Special thanks to Mason, my brother, for providing me with the details of their hike!
