    We traveled to Whittier on a glorious sunshine day to see Portage Glacier. To get to Whittier we traveled through a 3-mile tunnel which is only one lane wide. Cars go to Whittier on the half hour, then you return on the hour, and in between trains go through the tunnel. It's the only way to Whittier on land. The town is a major port for tourism and fish processing. After passing through the tunnel we traversed a ...

    Bags out at 6:30am and leaving by 8am. We wondered why it would take us more than 6 hours to Whittier, a distance of 240miles via Anchorage. We soon found out. On the way to Whittier, we stopped at - Millars Market for ice cream (9:40am, on the road for 1hr 20min) - no observable reason for this shop to be here other than to sell ice cream and souvenirs to tourists. - Wassilo at the Iditarod Museum (10:10am).

    ... better to stay on the RV. This was a trip from Anchorage to Whittier and goes along the Turnagain Arm, a fifty mile long body of water between the mainland of Alaska and the Kenai Peninsula.

    ... Eagle (Mike was asleep for this one though), moose, and Dall sheep! Among many other birds, of course. On the way back, the train actually backtracked to see more Dall sheep that had gone unusually low on the mountain side. We passed by a body of water known as ‘Turnagain arm’, named such because the explorer who discovered it thought it might be the northwest passage that he was searching for (and he was wrong and had to turn again).
