As Gazette reporter Dave Philipps once wrote, "there are two kinds of wilderness: wild places that have always been wild, and wild places where civilization fought to chip a foothold but the land proved too tough. Beaver Creek is the second kind." The trail to the Skaguay Power Plant in the Beaver Creek area isn't an easy one. It's not a place that's convenient to reach. However, those willing to tackle the task of embarking on a long, ill-defined trek through rugged wilderness are rewarded with being able to tell a story very few will ever have.
