The Alaska Ghost Town That’s Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip
Kennecott is a haunting and beautiful ghost town, lying near the remote town of McCarthy in Eastern Alaska. In a stunning valley ringed with seven glaciers, the remains of a huge mining operation stand against the Wrangell Mountains. Not only is Kennecott in a gorgeous part of Alaska, but the history of the mine is also a fascinating story of resources, World War I, western expansion, and Alaskan development in the aftermath of the Gold Rush. You can spend a gorgeous fall day wandering the ruins in the spooky ghost town of Kennecott.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
