Mountain Top Experiences

 

I’m back in Alaska for the summer, an unexpected turn of life that now affords me some epic days of hiking. My favorite route takes me up to the old Bonanza Mine, one of the copper mines in Kennicott, Alaska, back in the days when robber barons like J. P. Morgan financed what I believe was the most profitable copper mine in human history.

Here are the ruins (of which a person can still scramble around in):

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.
