When we stopped to see the glacier from one of the viewpoints a rainstorm veiled the mountains in the distance. I tried to capture the many layers of river, trees, river bed, glacier and mountains.
We've spent the last two nights at the Glacier View RV park, a really delightful place. It has a cafe that serves expresso and wonderful homemade pie and meals, of course. There's wifi and cable TV and a view of the Matanuska glacier and of Sheep Mountain.
After breakfast we drove back west to drive down to an area that we whizzed by the afternoon before. I tried some multiple exposures to do an HDR photo http://www.pbase.com/gpc/image/82105483 . While I liked the result I learned a lot and will try this again. After a bit more driving we returned to the RV park for lunch before heading off to visit the Musk Ox farm. I bought a quviat ski band made of the musk ox wool. It's supposed to be eight times warmer than sheep's wool and is amazingly soft.
We then hiked to visit the Matanuska glacier and each took many more photos. If you'd like to see some of them they're at the beginning of the North to Alaska gallery.
Tomorrow we'll head out toward Anchorage to stock up before our time in Denali.
