Grand View & Matanuska Glacier July 12-13/2009

We left Chitina on the morning of July 12th. At Glennallen, we headed on the Glenn highway towards Anchorage. We decided to stop overnight at the Grand View RV Park near the Matanuska Glacier.

We enjoyed this campground. We liked the peacefulness and the views. The staff were  very friendly and helpful. Their Cafe was excellent. We stayed an extra night before visiting the Matanuska Glacier.

At the Matanuska State Park, there was a nature trail overlooking the “Mat” Glacier but the only access to the Glacier itself was by paying a visitor’s fee at Glacier View Campground. We took the trail to the Glacier and walked up on the Glacier for a hour.
