Pictured is a gravel surface on the road that was part of the original Sterling Highway before becoming a section of Skilak Lake Road. Looking west from Rock Camp Hill. Rock Camp was the name of the Alaska Road Commission Camp near Hidden Lake where the 300,000-acre fire called the 1947 Kenai Burn began. This hillside was challenging for the "powder monkeys." Also in view are Alcatraz (all name choices by ARC employees) & Skilak (lake of the sky--from a Dena'ina name) lakes.
