Image is a southeasterly view from Bailey Hill, north of Palmer, toward the Knik River valley. The Knik Glacier is visible in the background with mountains on both sides. Middle ground is heavy forest. In foreground is a small field and a road section showing the curve in alignment necessary to ascend Bailey Hill, ultimately arriving at the point from which this photo was taken. This was the only point on the road providing this expansive view of the Valley, thus the local name “Inspiration Point”, and a popular stop for photographs. The road, which ultimately became Glenn Highway, was later straightened to cut through Bailey Hill, eliminating this section. A horse is apparent in foreground.
