Lazy Days at Tolsona Wilderness – Glennallen, Alaska
Continuing east we headed out to the town of Glenn Allen, 187 miles from Anchorage. The drive along the Glenn Highway designated as a National Scenic Byway is one of Alaska’s most beautiful, traversing a broad tundra and because of that we are reminded once again of frost heaves, damaged roads, dips… The road winds through gorgeous mountain ranges with spectacular scary drop offs. One of the most breathtaking sight is another glacier, the Matanuska Glacier. We even had a glimpse of the Wrangell Mountains as we arrived in Glenallen.
We spent our days at Tolsona wilderness catching our breath and taking a break from all the fun activities that we had. This is our 47th day since we arrived in Alaska and time is moving so fast. We played scrabble and had a camp fire for the first time in a long while. We were able to finally enjoy the sun, which made its rare appearance once again.
