An ATV Ride to Knik Glacier + Video!

One of our favorite summer activities is riding the ATV ride to Knik Glacier.  It is a 50 mile (round trip) journey through woods, across rivers, and up to the glacier.  This was our third year and third time making the trip.

Be prepared to get muddy and dusty on this trip.

Destinations: Chitina & Kennecott Mine, Part 2

With lunch packed, 5 gallons of extra gas, 2 cups of hot coffee our day begins.  It’s going to be a beautiful day in the Copper River Valley.  The cool morning air is refreshing during the unusually hot weather.  Our chosen mode of transportation to McCarthy is our side x side ATV.  The road is long and bumpy so taking the motorhome didn’t sound appealing, plus the ATV is a lot more fun!
