A great variation that is surprisingly seldom done. Instead of basecamping at Wolverine, try this interesting circumnavigation of the mesa. See this interesting feature from every angle as you travel all the way around it. You'll be surprised how different it looks on the back side. The route takes you through quite a variety of terrain and keeps you up in the high country for the whole trip.

Kelly and Wayne--just a note to say "thanks" for helping to make our trip to Alaska a real treat. A fly-in trip to Wrangell-St Elias with a glacier hike and tour of the old copper mill was a great way to end a trip that included a cruise of Prince William Sound, a wonderful fishing experience in Katmai country and a tour of Denali National Park. Don't tell anyone--but there are two Texans that admit that Alaska is bigger than Texas. The good thing about a short trip to Wrangell-St. Elias is that I want to go back again! Hope to see you soon. .
