Matanuska Glacier


Few roadside attractions can top this: Matanuska Glacier, a stable 27-mile-long river of ice -- thousands of years old -- that flows north from Alaska’s Chugach Mountains near the Glenn Highway. Here, Kevin O’Grattan, Kristine Janda and Ellie Southworth take in the spectacular view in between some slippery fun on ice.
