Matanuska Valley Road Trip

Get away from the fast pace of Anchorage and enjoy the great outdoors.  The Matanuska Valley has some of the most incredible sites along the roadway.  There are many county and state parks along the drive, as well as a wide glacier fed river.  The mountains along the drive, mostly from the Chugach Mountain Range, are an incredible site.  Filled with wildlife, these hills include Moose, Bears, Sheep, and much more wildlife.  After about two hours, one can reach the Matanuska Glacier in the town of Glacier View, and see what feeds the beautiful river that can be followed along the highway.  Enjoy the drive.
