Thanks for the Kennecott Tour. This was a BIG operation. Largest Copper find on the planet. On the McCarthy road we never got all the way in to the mill, but did camp in a gravel pit near the largest wooden train trestle. Fewer insects. The McCarthy road is graded mostly right over the old railroad right of way that hauled out the concentrate.

Thanks Alex, enjoyed the pics and text, showed me another spot we missed in Alaska that gives us another reason to go back! We're missing Alaska this summer, hopefully 2020 we'll visit again. I think your blog is working well for you!

GpnAZ Glad to hear from you and thanks for following along. I enjoyed your TR on Alaska also places we didn't go to on our first trip. On our next trip I'm hoping to get some photos of the northern lights, thanks again.

It was a long time ago at the store outside painted desert In had a black dodge dually with a real lite truck camper you posted a picture of our rig on line. We have been through a another truck and camper a class C a class A and now we are going back to a truck camper just bought a 07 G M C no particulate filter it is a 3500 4x4 next we are going to try and find a 07 to about 2016 bigfoot or northern lite dry bath nothing like a truck camper the class A the wife liked it but it kept us confined to paved roads. And it is off to a Alaska trip before I get to old or to sick to make the trip hopefully we will find the right truck camper in the next few weeks and were off for that far North great adventure

I had to think a bit to place you, I believe that was the south entrance to the Petrified Forest in Arizona. We're heading on out on July 11,2018 from southern California. Don't wait too long to go it get cold up there rather quickly.

PM me if there any question you may have....Alex
