Vacation pics Anchorage to Sitka

grammypJune 2, 2007

Here is the first group of pictures. We flew into Anchorage, took a bus to Whittier, sailed thru Collage Fjord then on to Sitka.

Flying to Alaska

Over the mountains.

Landing at Anchorage.

Driving to Whittier

Trees that were infused with salt water during the last earthquake. They are rock hard and have stood there for over 40 years.

The only way to get to Whittier is by boat or thru the shared railroad tunnel. The trains go north on the half hour, south on the hour and cars are spaced between.

First view of the boat as you come out of the tunnel.

Harvard Glacier in College Fjord. Yup, glacial ice is very blue.

Ice chunks in the water.

DD#2 standing on our balcony.

The hot tub on the Fantail Deck.

The ice sculpture demonstration.

Our waiter sings to MIL.

Our first towel animals were seals.

It was very cold and rainy. Most of the pictures look black and white, but are actually color.

Thank you for sharing these pictures. They made me think of my Alaska cruise. The ice is so very blue and pretty isn't it? I went in July and it was really nice. People were swimming in the pool with the snow and ice in the background! So cool looking!

Nancii it is about 45 minute drive to Whittier. We sailed on Carnival Spirit. It left at 9 on Wed. It was cold (40's), but we have checked the weather and it is getting up into the 60's now, much better. It is absolutely fabulous!

Wonderful pictures, Beverly! I was surprised to see the boat pulled up so close to the road? And I had not heard of the shared tunnel - that sounds like a good and safe system.
