Hike at Matanuska Glacier

Last weekend, Lisa Brown and her mom joined Ben and I, and our temporary roommate Garrett on a hike on Matanuska Glacier, just northeast of Anchorage. It was such a beautiful place, got lots of great pics, gonna have to post a lot to show you all! Sorry for the amount!

We thought we were on just dirt and rocks in the beginning, turns out its all ice!!!!

The glacier was melting in beautiful patterns into a river.

There was a really deep blue line in the ice, just denser ice with less air bubbles.
