After a grueling 6 1/2 hours of layovers we settled into a rather nice and new hotel in Anchorage, had terrific Italian food and crashed early.. 5AM came way quicker than hoped for but trains wait for no man.

The weather sucked — but the adventure was FANTASTIC! A few hours on a beautiful bubble car train [food and bar included] then 6 hours on a little tour boat heading south of Seward to the Kenai Fjords National Park  [pronounced Kee-Nigh]..Then a ride back to Anchorage for sunset, dinner & drinks from the train..


At about 320′ tall this ‘little’ calving action unfolded in 13 seconds…

Keep in mind the triangular rock face is 460-480′ tall when you click the big calving picture below!
