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

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.

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.
