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 hesitated to book the trip as it was a sizable expenditure for my family. I have to say, the trip to McCarthy – Kennicott was excellent and I will be recommending your company to all who will listen. Your pilots are first rate and your staff in McCarthy worked hard to ensure that all of us enjoyed ourselves..
