Started the trip with a journey south from Anchorage to Seward. Here is the harbor at Seward where we departed on a 3-hour cruise of Resurrection Bay. Even a touch of sea sickness didn't take away from my enjoyment of the sights.
Exit Glacier at Kenai Fjords National Park near Seward. Here you can make an easy hike to a close-up view of the glacier. For more info, click here.
Leaving Seward and Anchorage behind, we traveled north and encountered this view of Mt. McKinley, also known as Mt. Denali. At 20,320 feet, it is the granddaddy of mountains on the North American continent. For info, visit here.
Very fortunate that we were able to get this view of the top. They say that visitors to the area only have a 20% chance to see this full view.
