It’s the largest national park in the US, but it’s probably one of the least visited, which made it a very peaceful place. The more popular area of the park is the little town of Kennecott, which has a copper mining past. Other than the abandoned mine, a hike of about 2 mi one-way takes you to Root glacier, where you can walk on ice if you have the right shoes. If you get a guided hike, they will bring cleats for your shoes and go further on the ice.
Nebesna road is less traveled than the road leading to Kennecott.
There is a primitive cabin in the park which can be reserved for free if you want to rough it.
The weather did not cooperate and we didn’t get to see the mountain peaks during the day. But around 11pm, by the time we got to the B&B, the clouds cleared and the mountains revealed themselves.
