National Geographic Traveler ranks Seward Highway among its top twenty drives of a lifetime. The National Scenic Byways Program designates it an All-American Road. This two-lane highway south of Anchorage runs along the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet, and even on a rainy Tuesday its spectacular views caught me stopping for pictures about every ten minutes. Mountains literally meet the ocean, and the highway snakes along the same level as the sea. I even saw snow falling on the distant Chugach Mountains! The banner atop my blog is a photograph from a gorgeous sunny day along the stretch from Girdwood to AWCC.
