Here’s to the Good Times at the Golden Saloon in McCarthy, AK – July 2016
Before our bush flight into Solo Creek we spent quite a night at the Golden Saloon in McCarthy. The food and the band was great. We happened to run into Greg Fenstermann, owner and head guide from Trek Alaska who first introduced me to the Wrangell-St.Elias back in 2009. Greg literally wrote the book on backpacking in the park. He joined us and regaled our table with some unforgettable stories of local life in McCarthy. Then Thomas and I got up the gumption to dance with a couple of fine gals – yes, people still dance with each other in Alaska. Hannah Yoter had the place in a great mood.
