Time to leave Alaska!

This photo was taken as we departed Hart Ranch Campground in Slana, AK, near Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. We had spent several nights in this "unique" campground. There are two short (40 and 70 miles) roads into Wrangell-St. Elias National Park which is the largest national park in the US and a wonderful wilderness area. It joins another huge national park on the other side of the Canadian border to form a massive wilderness mountain area. We hiked the Slokum Volcano trail, a rigorous hike to the remains of an old weathered volcanic crater. This trail begins near the end of the shorter road. The longer road goes to Kennicott, the remains of the mining operation that started the Kennicott Copper Company. Both roads are worth exploring if you are adventuresome.
