Alaska's Kenai Peninsula

Just below Anchorage is Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. These photographs are inadequate, and words fail utterly to describe the beauty of glaciers coming down to the sea, and the wildlife to be seen just a few miles from downtown Anchorage. The Seward Highway and the Alaska Railroad share breathtaking views of Turnagain Arm before heading across the peninisula to Seward and Resurrection Bay. The rail line passes nearer glaciers in the Kenai Mountains and may offer better chances of glimpsing dall sheep, moose, bears (brown and black), and eagles.

Glacier and wildlife cruises are available in Seward. We saw so many seabirds, otters, sealions, whales, and magnificent glaciers that we were afraid we would be disappointed with the rest of our visit -- we weren't, of course, but even if you don't leave the Anchorage/Kenai Peninsula area, it is worth the trip to Alaska.
