  • What a place to stay

    Sheep Lodge

    Sheep mountain lodge is a beautiful hotel next to the mountain, looks like it would be a nice quiet place nestled against that mountain to just sit in awe every day and take in the view. What a way to wake up huh?

    Sheep Mountain

    How can y ou not stop in awe of this spectacular view... don't know what the mineral coloration is, but it certainly is pretty, and the lens does not do it justification ya know, you just have to stand there and take in the view.

    driving and pic taking

    Ok, not a good idea to take a picture while driving, but this is what I see and experience when I'm out on the road in Beautiful Alaska. Another bug filled window photo.. lol We actually stopped and took photos. This is a typical June day..

  • Good Glacier Info

    good info

    While at the rest stop to take a powder break, we viewed the Matanuska Glacier, the State does a beautiful job to accommodate tourists with motorhomes to pull into, lots of room to park, and get out of your car, and read about the glacier.

  • HOLY COW, what a site

    Matanuska Glacier

    Matanuska Glacier is awesome! It's about a 100 miles northeast out of Anchorage, maybe an hr and half drive along the Matanuska River, windy, cliffy at times, 2 lane road, to me not as traveled say as the Seward or Sterling hwys, which to me is appealing, to get there is a pleasant drive, so scenic.

  • take time to stop and smell the wild flowers

    alaskan wild flowers

    Since we didn't bring back the cooler full of salmon, we broke out the camera immediately and headed back to anchorage, but decided to make a slow touristy time at it, this is just one of the sites you can experience like I do here in Alaska.

  • Just another fantastic view of the copper river

    Copper River

    This particular spot is quite a drive, even for a seasoned, adventuresome 4 wheelin girl like myself, if you haven't been here, and your trying to find it the night before the 5am call in the dark, it's a task... I only had my written instructions from a friend who was going by memory.... thank goodness we have daylight almost 20hrs now!!!

    dipnetting on the cliff

    OH MY GOSH!! Just got back from a 500 mile drive up the Glen Hwy to Chitna to go dipnetting for the World Famous Copper River Reds, It was a 5 hr drive, one stop to get gas in Glennallen, which is 180 miles Northeast of Anchorage and you come to a T in the hwy, head towards Valdez, then take a left on the Edgarton, Kinney road for another 33 miles, then another trek along the Copper River.... what a spectacular view!!! We got skunked on this particular weekend, and decided to come back when the fish were on a harder run, but what a day to sit along the river bank!!

    waiting to get on the boat

    After the long drive and sleep over, we got up at 5am to get in line with the other 50 people that converged upon chitna to get on a boat to bring us to a spot down the river, but this day, the reds were not running, and we decided to bag it, and be tourists!! Again, another great advantage to being in alaska, bring the camera and take pictures... what a day to spend..

    4 wheelin

    These individuals decided to try to cross to the sand bar, where private boats can access the copper river to dipnet for the red salmon, as you can see, the white pickup here didn't make it...
