Travel Blogs from Hope

Barb snags one....

A travel blog entry by beadledove


We drove back out through the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel from Whittier into Portage Valley. We had no clear destination and wanted to make a short day of it, so we had a unanimous vote to go back to Hope Alaska. Hope is the charming little town on the south side of Turnagin Arm.
