Leaving Anchorage took quite a while, as we had several last-minute stops. At Carr's Supermarket, they had no regular pull-through parking slots (like RVs use). They had concrete dividers in the way, so we just drove it: Pull-through parking Land Rover style!

We finally got on the road and drove back the way we came to the northeast. We ended up at the Matanuska Glacier, where we explored a bit of the glacier. After that, we camped on the moraine at the toe of the glacier.
