Cruise to glaciers

An Alaska Railroad trip from Anchorage to Whittier gave us time
to enjoy the ride south along the Turnagain Arm. A five hour journey
would take us to see glaciers.  
Otters at perfectly at home on the ice. 

Icebergs groan around the boat. 
A glacier is about to calve.
Icebergs form unusual sculptured shapes. 

Only a small segment of land keeps the Kenai Peninsula from being an island.

Virtually everyone who lives in Whittier lives in one single building.

If you miss the last train or scheduled opportunity to drive though the tunnel in the evening, you become a POW, a prisoner of Whittier. you can leave in the morning when the tunnel opens.
