The area around McCarthy, Alaska, is not only immense, it is immensely empty of humans. The paltry few there now are dwarfed in time and space by the Kennicott Glacier. That said this 4 mile wide chunk of ice has shrunk by volumes since first photographed in the early 1900s when it was still high enough that it completely blocked the views of these distant, snow-covered mountains in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Walking on the glacier, done safely with a guide, is a life-altering experience, one that left me feeling blessedly insignificant.
