Traveling on the Alaskan Railroad

The last thing in the world we wanted to do was get off of the cruise ship when we pulled into port in Seward, Alaska. Why would you ever leave an ice cream counter that never closes, all-you-can-eat hot pretzels, and a ton of great people?

Yeah . . . we’d stay a little longer.

 

Well we weren’t upset for long, after only a few steps on dry land, we boarded the Alaskan Railroad for a ride up to Anchorage through some of the most beautiful country we’ve ever seen. While this is technically summer goal #9: travel the Alaskan railroad, it was secretly a life goal for Bob.

With a glass ceiling that allowed us to see mountaintop glaciers and soaring eagles almost as plentiful as seagulls back home, this could have been the most beautiful summer goal to date. Not only did we see 3 Moose, but Kelly! was the first person on the train to see a BEGULA WHALE, I repeat, a Beluga Whale, in the wild. Crazy. If any of you find yourselves between Seward and Fairbanks, we highly recommend you take this ride of a lifetime.
