After touring the Kenai Peninsula south of Anchorage we drove to Anchorage on Sunday and then back to Whittier on Monday where we resumed our planned itinerary out of Whittier, taking the Alaska Railroad from Whittier to Anchorage, a beautiful evening ride. In Anchorage we rented a car and headed for Denali National Park, but these pictures are all of and from the train. The train goes through the Whittier Tunnel (2 1/2 miles), past Portage Glacier and Portage Lake and then follows Turnagin Arm to Anchorage. We were in Anchorage only briefly but did visit Potter's Marsh, a wildlife sanctuary on the south side of the city.
