Day 5 in Alaska

Today we went to Palmer to visit the Havermeister's Dairy Farm and the creamery where they ship their milk to.

Then we went to this restraunt, can't remember the name but it was "gourmet" food which really meant YOU GOT NOTHING TO EAT FOR LOTS OF MONEY!! It was good salad and turkey pot pie, just not enough to "fill" a lot of the people on the trip. lol Here is a picture of our salad. They focused on presentation mostly, as you weren't even allowed to sit down until THEY were ready for you to sit.

After that we headed to the Musk Ox farm which was very interesting. Their Qiviut (fine under-wool of the musk ox) is very soft and 8 times warmer than wool.

The final stop for the day was at Pyra's Pioneer Peak farm where they grow vegetables for people to pick and pay for. Their vegetables are very big in Alaska too!!

I am trying to post pictures just that they won't load..
