Into the Wild - Christopher McCandless

Near Denali National Park
I recently saw "Into the Wild" which tells the true story of Chris McCandless, a young American who gives all his money to charity and begins to hike around the United States. His dream is to go to Alaska and live off the land. The story is much deeper than that, but my guess is you are here because you already saw the movie and know that.

The area shown in the Google map is south of Stampede road where Chris began his trek into the wilderness. A couple of people have identified this area on Google Earth to be where he lived in an abandoned bus. I don't feel that is too accurate given the close proximity to the road he attempted to get back to at one point. Unless the labels for this particular area are not correct.
