August 15, 2009 – The Knik River

We had a little break from the heavy rain today so we took a ride into Palmer – first to the post office and then to the Visitor Center – really nice museum there…

(Note I said heavy rain – we did have on and off sprinkles – :-))

From there we took a ride on the old Glenn Highway to the Knik River River Road – what a nice drive.

Here is the Knik Glacier (the only way to get close to this glacier is by boat or plane).   If it stops raining, we may take the jet boat tour.

We also saw a moose but she moved too fast for me to get a picture – :-(((

What a nice day!!

We are still trying to decide what to do – rain continues to be in the forecast so?????  Fall is definitely here.
