We contracted with St. Elias Guide Service and Wrangell Air for a guided backcountry trip out of McCarthy to a place called Skolai Pass, which according to the guide is one of the most remote places in North America. The bush plane took us about 45 minutes out of McCarthy. When we landed, the scenery was absolutely spectacular.Wildlife, from brown bear,doll sheep,big horn sheep, wolves and many others abounded.The silence and remoteness was awe inspiring and a great escape from the hustle of civilization. I am 60 years old and have traveled to many places on earth, but this trip was the best trip I have ever taken in my life.You bet I'm going back!
