Road Trip north of Anchorage

A travel blog entry by uskrkj01 on Jun 08, 2015

Today we went to Palmer to visit the Musk Ox Farm. At one time, the Musk Ox was extinct in Alaska. John Teal wanted to reintroduce them in Alaska, so he brought a small herd from Vermont.

We get better photos of the black bear when he emerges from the scrub, walk back to the moose, then check out the porcupine, caribou, Sitka black-tailed deer, baby musk oxen, lynx, horned owl and fox, and a striking russet-chested ...

... and a bear. We barely had time to spot them with binoculars, let alone get a picture of any of them.

Our biggest fears about cruising is that we won't have enough time to properly see things in port. What we've come to realize is that the places they pull into, don't need much time. A day is usually good enough to get a lay of the land. We could always fly back if we wanted to see more. Some cruisers don't do anything but shop at the ports. We ...
