As it turns out, time travel is possible in Alaska as Ultimate Adventure discovered on Day 4 by following the meandering Copper River until the road ends at the historic Kennecott Mine. When the mine shut down in 1938 the workers simply walked away, leaving all the tools of their trade behind. Its remote location allowed the mine to remain undisturbed for decades, a living time capsule of an early Alaskan mine. After touring the historic site, Ultimate Adventure hit the road, peeling off the pavement at sunset and engaging 4x4 because the campsite flanking the Alaskan Pipeline wasn’t accessible without Low Range and big tires. UA2019 set up camp and cooked under the stars among blueberry bushes and wildlife track.
