Travels today: Tok Cutoff to Gatkona (Richardson Hwy) to Glennallen (Glenn Highway) to Palmer. Road from Tok had lots of frost heaves – so just travel slow. Roadside ponds are a flutter with ducks and occasional Trumpeter Swans. Scenic views abound
Always on the look out for animals --- what a neat surprise. Not one but two different herds of caribou running on the highway.
At Eureka Summit area the bent snow poles help to guide the snow plows.
And the snowy mountain peaks just get better and better. One spectacular view after another. So glad we came early to see these magnificent mountains covered in snow.
Winter has stayed a bit longer, spring is on the way. Everyone tells us this is such an unusual year. By this time trees are leafed out and the waters flowing freely. Of course we wish it were a bit warmer, but we are thoroughly enjoying the beauty of the season. Plan to stay a week at the Palmer Elk’s Lodge --- what a grand view!
