Palmer,Alaska...........Musk Ox Farm.......
The world?s only domestic musk ox farm. Get to see these shaggy prehistoric Artic bison, which were hunted into extinction by the mid-1880s. Musk Ox wool (Quviut) is 8 times warmer than sheep?s wool and softer than cashmere.
Palmer is also the site for the Alaska State Fairgrounds, which opens in Aug. until Labor Day. The State Fair is famous for it?s 125 lb. pumpkins, 75 lb. cabbages, 10 lb onions and 2 lb. radishes.
