After several days in a gorgeous wilderness setting we moved on to Palmer, Alaska. Our days here have been spent on getting tires rotated, oil changed, clothes washed and shopping done before we begin our trek south. It hasn't been all work, of course. We spent quite a bit of time exploring the rivers and trails in the area. Today we went to the Alaskan State Fair. The fair was exactly what I'd hoped, a family event that celebrated the best of Alaska. Crops, quilts, beekeeping and farm animals were mixed with the more typical carnival rides and food. The giant Alaskan cabbages were a must see. Here's the blue ribbon winner but the judging of the giants will be Friday night and one may be even larger than the 58 pounds of this one.
We head toward the Yukon tomorrow. I'm looking forward to a bit of adventure.
