How can I describe a day like today
Driving the roadways of Alaska while on holiday?
Okay, so Cat Herder IS working, let's not forget that fact.
But having some fun while on tour, is something she's never once lacked.
Departing Alyeska, via the Seward, and the Glenn Highway New and Old
Arriving at the Rich: "head south," the Milepost told.
We saw rivers and glaciers, moose mommies and calves;
We lunched at the Matanuska, shared quite a few laughs.
By the time Valdez loomed in the windshield ahead
The numerous sights we'd seen began to throb in my head.
I told Dede: "No More! I can't bear one more view."
For today's many scenic moments had started to stew.
Too many vistas of snow and glaciers and so many moose
Swirled in my head, something I didn't want to lose.
So when we spied that last waterfall down the mountain, spilling forth
We said, no more stops today (and, besides, we'll see it again heading north!)
It's been the best of Alaska days, under this now midnight sun.
I think the MSR2 tour (so far) gets a Thumbs Up from everyone!
