The Strategic Positioning Day
Tomorrow we are going to drive the infamous McCarthy highway. 60 miles of former railroad bed to reach Kennicott and the main part of Wrangell St Elias NP. To do that we only drove about 90 miles today to a small park at Kenny Lake only 30 miles from the start of the road. After we found the park we set up the trailer and went to the M-SE NP VC where we took a walk with a ranger though a small trail in the boreal forest, informative. Nice place with an excellent movie on the park as well. Lunch in the parking lot and then we found a nice trail to a cliff overlooking one of the many raging rivers crisscrossing this area. We spent the evening packing for the short distance / long drive and our overnight at the lodge.
Cadillac’s Most Correct Viewpoint
Well we are dilly-dallying around instead of getting to the Moose Rights Rally Bog. I am using this time to fine tune the speech - but not surprisingly everything is excellent. BdB reports the signs are in place. Also excellent. One worry is the weather, no rain and lots of heat, not the best for the more feral of the Moose World. I’m sure they will come, who can resist? One small victory the Kenny Lake Mercantile where the guides landed the oval capsule has good coffee and lots of ice cream in little paper packages. Not the finest but I can handle less than perfect in a crisis. Adaptability (one of my most outstanding characteristics) once again on full display. I am sure that will serve me well day after tomorrow as likely something or someone will not follow my careful planning.
