Alaska -- Day 78

Beautiful scenery, and a stream out our front window! That summarizes our day. First, the camp site. We have been in tin city (campgrounds where we are surrounded by nothing but other people's metal boxes) for what seems like almost forever. The two most recent exceptions were Liard Hot Springs in British Columbia and Scenic View RV in Ninilchik. So today is a delight.

Tolsona Wilderness Campground near Glennallen is like a state or provincial park with electric and water hookups. Tolsona Creek runs through the campground, and right in front of our RV.

We stayed here on our last trip to Alaska and enjoyed the flowers. We did the same today. This gives new meaning to flower bed.

Cabbage makes a good centerpiece for flowers. And moose planters are cute.

There is an old rusty Caterpillar road grader on the grounds and neat antiques for sale in the office, including a child's sled and a Singer sewing machine. As I have mentioned before, I have good feelings about Singer, since my mother worked in their accounting department.

The scenery between Anchorage and Glennallen is great. We drove through the Matanuska River Valley, passing Long Lake.

The Chugach Mountains are beautiful.

We had good views of the Matanuska Glacier.

I think this is Leila Lake, near Sheep Mountain.
