Climb The Butte, 881 feet above sea level. The trail is steep but you are rewarded with a terrific 360 degree view and, on June 13, 2001, there was an added bonus of thousands of wild roses, blooming.

Hike to Thunderbird Falls An easy hike on a wide graveled trail, two miles round trip. Take the Eklutna Exit from the Glenn Highway (north of Anchorage, Alaska and south of Palmer, Alaska)... (6/8/01)

Experience the green of the northern forest. Follow a virtual hike along the trails around Matanuska Lake and Kepler Lake on June 29, 2000. Kepler-Bradley Lakes State Recreation Area is a day use area in the Matanuska Valley about 6 miles south of Palmer, Alaska. The trails are pleasant and the walking easy. Bring mosquito repellent.
