South Central Community:
Glennallen and Mt. Drum
July 22, 2009
Glennallen, referred to as the Hub of Alaska's road system, is a service center on the Glenn Highway, two miles west of the junction with the Richardson Highway. Because of its strategic location, the town provides a wide range of facilities and services and is the major departure point to the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Surrounded by four mountain ranges - Wrangell-St. Elias to the east, Alaska Range to the north, Chugach to the south and Talkeetnas to the west, Glennallen offers scenic splendor in all directions. Glennallen is the starting point and finish line for the yearly Copper Basin 300 Dog Sled Race. Often referred to as the toughest 300 miles in Alaska, the race is held in January and serves as a qualifier for the 1,000-mile long Iditarod race held in March. Population: 589
Northern Nights RV Campground is located in the heart of Glennallen! The campground has large tree-lined, pull-thru RV sites, water, electric (30 amps) and a dump station. Dessert Night on Monday and/or Friday evenings at 7 p.m. for dessert. Hear about the area from the locals. Bring your appetite and a chair. Paperback book exchange at office.

Mount Drum is a stratovolcano in the Wrangell Mountains of east-central Alaska in the United States. It is located at the extreme western end of the Wrangells, 18 miles west-southwest of Mount Sanford and the same distance west-northwest of Mount Wrangell. It lies just inside the western boundary of Wrangell-Saint Elias National Park and Preserve, and is 25 miles east of the Copper River. Its south face rises 6,000 feet over the head of the Nadina Glacier in only 1.6 miles. Its west slopes rise 9,000 feet over the tundra in only 10 miles, and 11,000 feet over the Copper River in only 25 miles. These numbers are comparable to better-known stratovolcanoes like Mount Rainier and Mount Shasta. However Mount Drum is somewhat overshadowed by its much higher neighbor Mount Sanford.
