Early September brings the colors of Autumn to the Copper River Delta. The verdant palette adjusts to golds and burnt umbers brought by the change of seasons.  The rich colors invite you to bundle up and go for one last hike before the rains set in.

Trumpeters in Winter

The resident Trumpeter Swans gather in openings in the frozen surface of Lake Eyak. On an icy quiet morning you can hear their low conversations with one another drifting in the cold.

Sheridan Glacier Rd

Just 10 minutes off the Copper River Highway you will find the Sheridan Mountain Trailhead as well as the access trial to Sheridan Glacier.  Surrounded by lush greenery, fields of lupine and wildflowers this is the outdoor enthusiast's dream.

Hartney Bay Snow

Glacier Exploration
Glacier Viewing -  A visit to Cordova is incomplete without a trip to the glacier. Many people come to Alaska to see glaciers.  From the airplane window you see them dot the landscape below.  They dazzle, they amaze, and they capture your attention.  Spend just one day at a calving glacier and you will find it nearly impossible to tear yourself away.
