Matanuska Glacier

Just off the Glen Highway between Glennallen and Palmer Alaska is the Matanuska Glacier, a 27 mile long 4 mile wide river if ice that is the source of the Matanuska River.  On the drive back to Minnesota this Fall, this will have to be a for sure stop and hike up to the glacier.  I drove past the glacier this week on a marathon road trip from Homer to Whitehorse.  Really the best and most stunning scenery on the whole Alaska Highway lies between Haines Junction in the Yukon, and Palmer Alaska.  The Glen Highway in incredible.
