Just returned from Alaska where we took a tour of the Kennecott Copper Mine through St Elias Alpine Guides. The tour was incredible, I recommend it to anyone. Very interesting and hard to imagine building what they did back at that time, essentially in the middle of nowhere. We booked through St Elias Alpine Guides who have locations in both McCarthy and Kennicott. Great staff, very friendly and informative. I highly recommend them. Would do it again!

If you drive there it is long and slow from Chitina,but like everything else in Alaska its beautiful.I was there july 07.They were doing rehab on some buildings to make them safe.I recomend taking a ranger guided tour.The rangers are very knowlegeable.It's amazing how they did the mining with how far from civilization they were.I also suggest going on a glacier tour.You can walk on the glacier which is a once in a life time thing in my opinion.
