... is open on the half hour for 15 mins, then it is open from Whittier on the hour for 15 mins. Arriving at 10 past meant we had no waiting time. It is strange to go into a small opening in such a high mountain and come out the other end after almost 10 mins, driving at 25 mph. Whittier is the port for Prince William Sound which is famous for its day cruises and fishing. There was a cruise ship in and a huge harbour with many small craft.

... moose and barley soup at a local café, we hiked into the hills to pick salmonberries and see the salmon further upstream who had already spawned in the gravel of the tiny streams and were dying; a sorry sight but all part of nature’s cycle as they are food for birds, bears and their decaying bodies nourish the ground for plants to grow.
