Today we set out on an adventure with my cousins. We loaded everyone and the dogs into Roo for a day trip. We even brought Dorny the Boler along too.
We were headed to Whittier for a hike but the first stop was Beluga Point on Turnagain Arm. Although we didn’t see any belugas the views were spectacular.
We then headed for Whittier passing through North America’s longest single lane shared car and train tunnel. My younger cousin Veronica brought a book and volunteered to dog sit Huuna so the rest of us could go hiking. They hung out in Dorny the Boler and We parked at the trailhead and started the steep hike up, up and away.
The hike was steep but well worth the spectacular view at the top.
The view towards Portage Glacier took your breath away.
Looking back towards the road we parked on, you can see just how steep the incline was.
We drove through Whittier and saw the old abandoned army barracks.
Then we had to time the tunnel back so that we could make bear feeding time at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC). We saw the three brown bears and 2 black bears.
We also saw Muskox
Reindeer/ Caribou are on my other camera.
We found the Muskox yarn I’d thought about buying but realized it’s not in my budget.
Then it was back to the lake for a quick nap as I had had too much excitement for one day and finished the day with a bonfire beside the lake with s’mores and a sunset.
