Day 13-Monday, July 18, 2011
We drove back to Anchorage. On the way we had a wonderful visit at the Musk Ox farm outside of Palmer. They had the bulls, cows, young and newborn. They use the hair to weave ouvite in small native villages. It is eight times warmer than wool, very lightweight and will not shrink in any temperature water. We watched two bulls in a head-butting contest while one frustrated bull was trying to destroy the fence.

Got back to Anchorage and had a restful evening.
