After checking out Homer Spit I headed for Anchorage. The first part of the drive is on Sterling Highway, which has some terrific scenery. The road runs through broad, glacial valleys and past many lakes on the way to the Seward Highway, which takes you the rest of the way to Anchorage. Seward Highway has some great scenery as well. It is a National Forest Scenic Byway and one of 15 roads in the United States that has been designated as an "All-American
Road." Much of the portion I took runs along Turnagain Arm, which has the second highest tides in North America. I got to see the bore tide rushing inland.
I spent my time in Anchorage re-packing, getting ready to fly to Katmai National Park tomorrow.
