Mountain Mary's is located in the small town of Eagle River, in the pristine Eagle Glacier Valley of the 495,000 acre, Chugach State Park in South Central Alaska.
Mountain Mary's is a labor of love. Love of herbs, nature and a more natural healthy life. MM's started in a kitchen 17 or so years ago, morphed into a store front and back to the home shop that it is today.

  1. Eagle River begins it's genesis headwater from Eagle Glacier in the Chugach State Park, not the Chugach National Forest. Ray Massey, Forest Service Public Affairs.

  2. Ray, Thank you for pointing that out, I'll be sure to change my description. :O)

    Chugach State Park is in the Chugach Nat'l Forest, though, is it not? Or is it just on the edge? I'd love clarification.
