From the fuzzy dryas covered Nizina River bar, behold the spectacle of massively folded and twisted limestone cliffs 2400’ above. Enjoy easy hiking along the flat bar whose braided waters originate from Nizina Glacier ten miles away. A clear stream flows from the base of the cliffs often attracting Grizzly, black bears and an occasional moose.
I had a wonderful time in Alaska – the three days in McCarthy were the best of my three week vacation. I am sure I will be back. .
