Being chased from Denali area by strong forest fire smoke I continued on to my planed route along the Glennallen Hwy.

It is a spectacular route leading from Palmer to town of Glennallen. I have explored it previously and at left lasting impression on me with possibilities of future paintings. I was not disappointed since a fresh snow came over high alpine creating a spectacular display of contrast. It is also a home of very accessible Matanuska Glacier, which stretches nearly to the edge of the hwy.
