We loved our (unfortunately) short time in McCarthy. Ma Johnson's Hotel was quite charming and offered an insight into high living in 1920's AK. Actually reminded me of Gunsmoke....We had salmon the best salmon diner of our lives at the resturant and we were quite suprised to find top shelf ETOH in the bush. We'll be going back in 2015!
