::snort:: ::gasp:: We KNEW it would be raining when we drove into Alaska. Beautiful weather until we arrived! I'm sure it will clear up in a few days. August is the rainy month. In any event, we were relieved to see the beauty continued beyond the border.
These are snow poles. I know this as the milepost says they are.
We left the Alaskan Highway at Tok. However, I decided to add this day's travel to the trip otherwise we would just be hanging out on the highway forever. LOL
We did a U-turn, not an easy feat with this caravan, to go back to stop at the Matanuska Glacier State Recreation area. Stacia's first time to see a glacier. The video is at the end of the post. Stacia's reactions are priceless.

As I took shot after shot, in the rain, trying to get them all in and STILL see the glacier, Michael finally gave me "the look" below. ::snort:: "Give me the camera, I'm taller. I can get the shot."
|And he could.|
Michael set the GPS for an RV park in Palmer. It turns out it is 1.3 miles from the home we are negotiating to buy. We knew the kids would like to see - so we drove by. This was not our 1st or 2nd choice of a home, and we'd not given it or the neighborhood the close scrutiny we gave the other two homes we knew interested us. We were relieved to see the neighborhood is really nicer than either of the other two.

We bought some pizza and met JaRissa at their home for dinner. I didn't take many photos, but did think to grab one.
