My daughter boarding the tram to McCarthy, Alaska, in 1979. Yesterday I posted one of my paintings of the upgraded tram. Before the upgrade this crude platform was the method for crossing the river during the summer. I prefer to fly to the airstrip near town and not have to deal with the tram and hauling gear on foot.Â During the 1980’s and 1990’s I spent many, many hours researching subjects for original paintings in this fabulous historic location.
