Alaska is such a fantastic destination to explore, regardless of the season! It really is a four-season destination, and filled with amazing opportunities for discovery on both land and sea. Matanuska Glacier is one of those incredible discoveries that I got to enjoy and explore while in Alaska for the Iditarod. Being able to hike all over a glacier is truly an incredible experience, especially when you're able to go into some of the gorgeous ice caves! This view is of the glacier from a neighboring mountain's edge near the side of it, and just a tiny glimpse of what it really is. Matanuska Glacier is approximately 27 miles long by 4 miles wide, found about 100 miles northeast of Anchorage. It is a day trip that is well worth the effort to get there and explore!
