Fly over the wild vastitudes in a small Cessna. There is something surreal about seeing Alaska’s immense, untouched expanse of wilderness from above. Maybe it’s because it puts it all in a different perspective for you — you feel small before the grandeur of nature.
From the plane you notice the utter absence of human traces down below. The Wrangell Mountains are quite dangerous and challenging to navigate, so most explorers never get past McCarthy. The most comfortable way to explore this rough country is by plane, as you will be doing.
You will fly over huge mountains, land on ice fields and the edges of glaciers and, when you tire of winter, alight on summer meadows bursting with tangy wild berries.
