The Seward area


Seward within the yellow circle
 

We head out of Anchorage along the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet
entering the Chugach National Forest area (see map below)

 

 

The breathtaking views just keep on & on...

 

 

The Seward sports & commercial small boat harbor at the head of Resurrection Bay
 

A map showing the nearby snow fields & glaciers.
Seward (see map below) is in the lower left of center area
 

Here the town of Seward can be spotted at the head of Resurrection Bay.
If you follow the red line (road) up toward the right from Seward you come to...

The Kenai Fjords & Exit Glacier
 

Where we find Jean obeying the Danger Sign to not get any closer to the foot of the glacier
 

The day was cloudy - well, actually it was raining at times - so the striking
blue ice of the glacier was not as brilliant as we have seen it in the past.
(In 2004, when we visited here as well.)
(above & below)

 

Glacier melt run-off
