Alaska and Great Northwest Road Trip 2008 travel blog

Move day again. Hard to leave a beautiful place like this. I would like to stay a couple of months here, but we need to move on to catch as much of Alaska as possible. If we ever come up again, we would bring a small RV and stay around the coast. Jenny bought a couple of sweatshirts for herself while I broke down camp. We drove back up the same roads to Palmer so we didn’t stop since we seen it before. Probably should have filled up at Anchorage, but we still had 600 mile left in the tanks. The fuel stations in Anchorage along the Glenn Highway are small and would be hard to get two large RV in at the same time. We decided to drive on about half way between Palmer and GlennAllen to stop for the night. The road is narrow and a lot of steep curvy grades. We stopped for about 15 minutes for a pilot car to lead us thru a construction area. The entire area was mud, so the truck/RV is now a brown color. A couple of miles later we reached the Grand View Campground about 20 miles outside Eureka. It’s located beside the Matanuska Glacier. They have a trail that leads you to the glacier overlook. We were told to beware of bear and moose. We did see recent moose poop and hoof prints, but no wildlife. We had a great view once we made it up to the ridge. The steep ridges have a lot of Dull Sheep, but we haven’t spotted them yet. Tomorrow, we should be in Valdez.
