I Got So Muddy!!
You cannot believe how much fun we had yesterday! My husband wanted to do an ATV trip while we were in Anchorage. He researched it and chose 49th State Motor Tours. Without a doubt, he picked the best company. We saw other tour companies on our outing and nobody was taking their people over the rough stuff like we did. Through deep water. Through deep mud trenches. Dirt flats (we might have raced through these!) We ended up at the base of the Knik Glacier, where Brian, 49th State Motor Tours owner, cooked fresh salmon quesadillas while we wandered around and took pictures. As a southern, obviously I’ve had quesadillas, but salmon quesadillas? No ma’am and YUM YUM YUM. Worth the ride just for those! He also had hot coffee, tea, apple cider, chocolate, and just about anything else “hot” you wanted! Also a snack box with chips, cookies, fruit rollups, and probably some healthy stuff. I might have grabbed cookies!
The ride to the glacier was awesome. Brian (owner of 49th State Motor Tours) is in the lead ATV with Wheeler, his trusty “assistant.” He’s pulled out a stuck ATV.
I’m uploading some videos if you want to experience some of the ride!
We made it to the base of Knik Glacier but I admit, it made me sad to see how much it has shrank. My husband at the edge. Look at the flowers!
When we left, our 4-wheeler was bright, clean blue. (You can see the nice blue color in the videos)
Here is it at the end! HAHAHA
Let’s just say… that smile on my face was that way ALL day and into the evening. AND there was probably mud and dirt between my teeth too! 🙂
This trip was everything advertised and more. Worth every dime!
This morning (Saturday), breakfast was the world-famous Gwennie’s Old Alaska Restaurant. Let’s just say…OHMIGOD good!
Now, it’s back to editing. Tomorrow we pack and get ready to move to Brooks Camp.
Check it out! There is a LIVE Bear Cam!
I bought a bunch of Alaskan souvenirs to give away while I’m here. Leave a comment to be in the running for today’s Alaskan Surprise!
