Matanuska Glacier

Mom and I took off for an overnight road trip up the Glenn Highway.  
 We stopped along the way for some pics of the rivers flowing near the highway.
 This lake is so beautiful with the mountains on all sides.
 Mom was intrigued by the mountains here.
 Some of the mountains are green with trees and vegetation to nearly the top. Other mountains right next to them are covered in snow.
 You can see the Matanuska Glacier in the distance behind Mom in this photo.
 This is a gorgeous drive along this valley.
 The glacier began to get closer as we traveled north.
This glacier is massive. It's hard to capture it in the pictures. Just for reference, look at the spruce trees in the foreground of this picture. Now look at the spruce trees near the front of the glacier. It makes them look tiny!
It was a really nice drive but we were ready to stop for the night.
