Going from Copper Center / Glennallen to Anchorage we passed the Matanuska Glacier.

It is claimed to be the only glacier you can drive up to in a car.

As we approached Palmer we stopped at the Musk Ox Farm. Here is Rascal taking a break.

This is a musk ox, big and very shaggy. The yarn is very soft and very expensive.

This is the Knik Arm which is the first sign of salt water as you leave Palmer toward Anchorage.

This is Ship Creek RV Park in Anchorage. It is highly recommended by Good Sam and a must stop for all the rental RVs. We didn't like it at all.

I have to tell you about this Welcome sign. Irene missed it on the way into town. We passed it several times running errands and Irene kept missing it, could reach the camera or turned it on too late or something. It is on the main highway into town so you can't stop. She was getting frustrated until she finally had everything ready and got the picture.

If you push the button the propeller spins and it makes engine noise and puffs smoke out of the exhaust pipe. Pretty cool.

Everybody calls poor Rascal a "horse" so we finally took his to see a real horse. Naturally the horse's owner had to come meet Rascal.

We got fuel and this is what we saw every few minutes. The gas station is right across the street from the airport and here I am holding a fuel hose with these airplanes flying right at me. I'm just glad they didn't land short.

That little valley across Turnagain Arm is Hope where we camped that night. The tide is out and you can see it's very shallow.

We had a great campsite looking across Turnagain Arm toward Beluga Point, still didn't see any belugas. I'm taking quick look see at the new water heater to make sure everything still looks in order.
