This Alaska Trip


I took off on the Seward Highway from Anchorage intending only to visit Portage Glacier today, but met up with some great people who informed me of other things I shouldn't miss. While I was told there's not much in the town of Whittier itself, the road to it off the main highway is a pretty drive partly through an interesting tunnel that is only one lane, so the two directions have to share it at different times. Traffic going into Whittier goes on the half hour and from Whittier on the hour. There's a track in the middle so it is also shared by the train that used to be the only way by land into Whittier. The tunnel is not for those suffering from claustrophobia - it is very confined and goes on for two miles.

This was taken at one of the many scenic spots on the Seward Highway.
Another amazing view from the highway. Under perfectly clear skies, it was an exceptional day.
This was taken on the side of the road right before you get to the tunnel to Whittier.
