Alaska's Winter Horizon

Monday, March 22nd

Doesn't feel much like spring today. In fact, we had snow showers on and off all day. No accumulation to report. It was quite brisk, about 31 degrees, which gave me a perfect reason to wear my new boots. Sorry, I know it breaks your heart to hear that I don't have a picture of them. Never fear, I'm sure Greg will post a close-up of them later. Today he was too busy trying to keep warm.

The picture of the train was taken down near Ship Creek. There are many trips you can take by rail here. We plan on taking the train to Denali this summer. They have cars with these cool viewing decks and glass tops.

We also hope to take a few glacier cruises down in Prince William Sound. There is a glacier about 100 miles north of Anchorage called the Matanuska Glacier. It is the largest glacier you can get to by road in Alaska. Called a "valley glacier", it is 24 miles long and about 2 miles wide.
I have a feeling we are going to run out of time and money before we run out of things to do in Alaska.
