Glenn Highway / Matanuska State Recreation Area, Alaska
You take the Glenn Highway to travel between Anchorage, Seward, and Valdez. We drove it somewhat quickly without stopping much. However, it was breathtakingly gorgeous. We stopped briefly at Matanuska Glacier. It was pretty, but privately owned so it cost $30/person to hike to it. We didn’t pay. Kept driving to this state recreational area instead. We took a few photos of the glacier there and did a quick hike. If you’re on the Glenn, I highly recommend stopping here instead of paying to hike on the private land around the glacier. You can camp here for $20/night in the campground, or $10/night in the parking lot if you want a toilet and to be around more people. However, there are tons of pull-offs where you can camp for free on the Glenn, so I (personally) would just do that.
