So you want to walk on a glacier. The first order of business is to find a glacier to walk on. Turns out that a suitable speciman exists just a little more than a two-hour drive from Anchorage. The Matanuska Glacier is a 27-mile long, 4-mile wide river of ice that wends its way down out of the Chugach Mountains. And it happens to be one of the most car-accessible glaciers in the United States. Getting There - Take the Glenn Highway north of Anchorage. Your first choice is taking the Old Glen Highway at about milepost 29. The old road runs up along the Knik River and across to Palmer.

In Anchorage, you don't have to go far to get a caffeine fix. There are coffee stands and coffee shops on practically every corner -- including a new roaster in town that's steaming up the competition. "We take a lot of pride in not over-roasting coffee, and really roasting to a bean's strength," said Steamdot Coffee Company owner and president Jonathan White, stirring through a vat of coffee beans. "This particular bean has great acidity, really, really spicy, sweet tones to it -- and if we go too dark, we'd miss all that and it would taste just like dark coffee.
