Our cruise voyage finished where last year’s cruise began, in the port town of Seward. We bid farewell to our home
One of the most scenic highways in the world is the stretch between Seward and Anchorage — the magnificent Seward Highway. Along the way you can stop to see Portage Glacier (which we skipped this voyage, having seen it last year) and spectacular views of pristine meadows surrounded by white-topped mountains.
Also along the way is also the fun Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. Their mission? To protect Alaska’s wildlife, which come out in herds on Friday nights and roam the bars, saloons, and dance halls into the wee hours of Monday morning. Oh, wait. Wrong wildlife. What you will see there are American Bison, deer, black bears, bobcats, bald eagles, and other assorted (and sober) animals. Of course, you don’t have to go to a conservation center to see Alaskan wildlife. You could just wait until you hit the streets of Anchorage on the weekends.
