We started the day with a drizzly rain but it ok because we drove slowly looking for wildlife. Â It wasn’t long before Greg spotted a mama moose and two babies crossing the road ahead of us. Â It seemed that mama told the babies to make a run for it so they did. Â They all skittered across the road as quickly as possible. Â So far this trip we have seen 7 mama moose and 5 babies.
we arrived in Glenallen around noon and we stopped at the caribou hotel and Restaurant for lunch. Â Â It’s always a good sign when locals frequent the place, and arriving at noon, we found the place to be full of locals. Â We saw a tray of hamburgers being delivered to a table and they looked so good we ordered them for ourselves. Â Hands down, they were the best burgers we’ve had in a long time!!! So we really enjoyed our hot lunch.
because we are on the highway that heads down to Valdez, we’ve followed the Alaska pipeline all day. Â It’s such an engineering feat and Greg really enjoyed seeing it up close. Â We did not drive this part of the road on our last trip, so we have really enjoyed the scenery.
it occurred to me today that I better make some reservations for the upcoming week due to the July 4th holiday so as soon as we settled in our campground in Grand View, Alaska, I started plotting the next couple of weeks. Â Everything worked out except for a couple of days we will have to camp without services but we can prepare for it. Â Tomorrow we will drive toward Cooper Landing on the Kenai Peninsula.
