Kennicott Mining Town
Kennicott is an abandoned mining camp northeast of Valdez, Alaska. Surprisingly, the entire camp lies within the boundaries of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the largest National Park in the United States. Originally constructed in the early 1900's as a copper mine, the entire camp, now declared a National Historic Landmark, Kennicott today functions as a tourist spot in an absolutely stunning location. The village is surrounded by beautiful mountains, and enormous glaciers occupy major portions of the valley below it.
