Kennicott Bikers, Alaska, 1993
Photograph by George F. Mobley
Two mountain bikers cross the Kennicott River via a hand-drawn tram in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. The primitive cable car replaced a bridge washed out by the raging Kennicott, and at the time of this photo, it was the only way (save flying) into the historical mining village of McCarthy.
