our 40th anniversary.We
planned to drive to Valdez
which was not a particularly long drive, but since we had not had a chance to
see the Matanuska Glacier we decided to backtrack a little to take a few
pictures before hooking up the trailer.The rain had lessened which allowed us to get a few pictures of the

there were two juvenile goshawks sitting on the rail.They finally flew off allowing us to get pictures
of the glacier.
