Big exciting drive to day — we drove a whole 50 miles north west of Anchorage to the town of Palmer. The boys ordered some computer gadgets to be delivered to a UPS store and the only one in the direction we are going is in Palmer (we were tired of Anchorage). Hopefully the package will arrive on Monday and we can continue on our way. Palmer is a cute little town. We went to the Friday Fling (farmers market) and walked around town. Zaph enjoyed the market as lots of kids stopped to pet him. Driving the long way back to the campground took us past a waterfall and a glacier. We’re treating ourselves and are staying a campground with full services (electricity, water and sewer). It’s also Zaph approved as it backs onto a state recreation area that has several lakes and a hiking trail. Yeah, he managed to talk us into a swim.

Just below Palmer, from the banks of the Knik river you get an excellent view of the Knik glacier
