The road to McCarthy from the Copper River Bridge just out of Chitina follows the roadbed of the old Copper River Northwest Railroad for virtually its entire distance.  This trestle across the Kuskalan River gorge is part of that historic railroad.  The view from the trestle is one to remember.
This shot was taken from a helicopter en route to Sourdough Ridge above McCarthy to effect some repairs on a repeater station there.
