Summer Trip with the Girls

Got all packed up and headed out of Anchorage about 11:30. We made our way along the Glenn Highway. It was so pretty in all of its summer colors. The Matanuska River level was very high. It looked like a washing machine with all of its turbulent waters.
  The weather was nice with the temps near 60 and only a light wind blowing. We stopped at the Matanuska Glacier for a delightful lunch.

You can see the glacier over the girls' shoulders in this picture.

 We continued on, traveling through light rain showers, and stopping occassionally for rest breaks and photos.


 Trumpeter swans were in some of these lakes along the highway.
 We made it into Tok about 7:30. Our little log cabin was waiting for us so we decided to call it a night.
