This camera is looking up-river, southeast, from the Cap'n Snow Center in McGrath, Alaska.
This is an excellent vantage point to watch several iconic Alaskan events as well as the
changing seasons of the Upper Kuskokwim River. In February, you will glimpse the Irondog
the worlds longest toughest snowmobile(snow-machine) race and catch the racers speeding down
the frozen Kuskokwim river. In March, this camera catches the activity of the Iditarod Trail
Sled Dog Race
, as teams come into and depart from the McGrath checkpoint. Witness "break-up"
when the ice goes out in May. If you guess the right time, your ticket could be the big winner!
In summer, a good, old-fashioned 4th of July Parade gets underway at this spot. River life is
floating in a colorful kayak down to Sand Island or boating to fish or moose camp. Enjoy seeing
some of the beauty and fun that McGrath has to offer! Come visit McGrath
