Here are our pictures from the train ride from Anchorage to Whittier.

We had a beautiful train ride from Anchorage to Whittier. It was beautiful seeing all of the scenery. We got to Whittier around noon and enjoyed checking onto the boat and then walking the town of Whittier. The history in this town is interesting. It was built during WWII. Check out our pictures.
... gulch and some of them helped us across. We started the 2 1/2 mile trek back to the trailhead. We did cross over from the Winner Trail to the Nordic Track. It was very steep and we could not imaging actually cross country skiing up those hills! Ron told us later that the Olympic skiers use that course for training.
