08-Oct-2001 -- I took advantage of a cloudless indian summer day and made the trek to this fairly accessible confluence (for Alaska). The day started out quite foggy due to a cold night and unfrozen river. The closest I could drive was the settlement of Ferry, a small collection of cabins centered around the Alaska Railroad and off the power grid. A road led much closer but it was on the other side of the Nenana River and there is no vehicle bridge across. I suspect the vehicles on the other side got there during the winter when the river was frozen. The total walk was around 12 miles round trip. Nine miles were on the road I couldn’t drive on. The rest was cross-country through thick woods, alder and willow ‘hells’, and tussock tundra. Not much fun. My dog obviously wondered more than once why this trip was necessary. But now I’m fairly secure in the knowledge that we may have visited a spot that has not seen a human/dog footprint in a very very long time.
