The Grind coffeehouse in half-hippie, half-hip Girdwood just off the Alyeska Highway. I spent a few hours here planning our next destinations. Tomorrow we’ll hike parts of the Exit Glacier on the Harding Icefield Trial; on Saturday we’ll head west to Homer. And [drum roll] for Monday evening I’ve booked a ferry ride to Juneau that arrives in Alaska’s capital on Wednesday. On Thursday we’ll continue to Skagway, and from there we will connect to the Cassiar Highway toward Vancouver.
