For almost 30 years the 'Magic Bus' brought there by Christopher McCandless, a 24-year-old boy who had decided to live in the Alaskan wilderness feeding on what nature had to offer him, was a symbol of adventure, freedom and a challenge to social rules as well as nature.

A story with no happy ending as McCandless's lifeless body was found and from that incredible story was born a book and a film, 'Into the Wild'. The film was directed by Sean Penn with a soundtrack by Eddie Vedder.

Now, however, the bus has been removed as part of an exercise, at no extra cost, from a U.S. Army helicopter from Denali National Park because it had become a destination for impromptu trekkers, also causing casualties among adventurers women and men attracted by the charm of that enterprise.
