Take a hike along the lower slopes of Mt. Wrangell. The broad, trundle plateau gives you unobstructed views and easy access to the icy Western side of this 13,887 ' peak. On a clear, windless day you may catch a glimpse of the steam plume rising lazily from this active volcano.
Hiking is easy to moderate on alpine tundra, and good camping spots can be had near small lakes and numerous clear streams. For the alert backcountry traveler, this location offers good opportunities to see Caribou, Dall Sheep, Wolves and Bears.
Last month you took care of our transport from Chitina to McCarthy and our return, one day earlier than planned. Traveling with Wrangell Mountain Air was unique for us. It became one of the most impressive experiences on our tour in Alaska. We thank you very much. We'll surely recommend you to anyone who wants to visit Wrangell-St. Elias..
