Our bus ride

After a fun filled day in Anchorage we boarded a bus that took us out to Whittier to board our ship, the Island Princess. It was a beautiful drive. We saw some wildlife, Bryan Glacier, drove through a tunnel that actually is only big enough for one car to go through at a time. For 20 minutes the tunnel has traffic going one direction. For the next 20 minutes the traffic goes the other direction, the next 20 minutes the trains run. The speed limit is 10 miles an hour. Very close quarters.

The bay that we drove along side to whittier was going out. Did you know that the shore line around alaska, when the tide is out, the land is bigger that all of Texas.
