On Monday my brother-in-law and I took a 2.5+ hour car trip (each way!) past Delta Junction to the Gulkana Glacier. We drove past Salcha, Eielson Airforce Base, and Fort Greely. The drive was very scenic and we saw moose x6!

We hiked around the surrounding area and it was so peaceful. With the exception of seeing a couple at the end, we had the whole place to ourselves! This I felt was so Alaskan. I also did hardcore hiking (compared to the trails we have in KY) and also walked along the stream a.k.a glacial runoff.

Now for some pictures, courtesy of the iPhone:
