It is a short but very scenic flight to Peavine Bar near the mouth of the Chitistone Canyon. The airstrip is tucked along side the river with vertical limestone cliffs of Chitstone Canyon towering 3000 feet above. Just beside the airstrip are two public use cabins.
Hiking is limited here by the Chitistone River but views are great and there is ample room to wander on short hikes from the cabin. Watch for Dahl Sheep on the cliffs above and Black and Grizzly Bears on the gravel bars along the river. A great place to spend a couple of days.
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..
