Alaska Auberges de Jeunesse


Alaska


Alaska Commentaires

Anchorage is a world class city. One of my 5 favorite cities in the US.
The new dock and harbor is much safer than the old, mess of a dock that used to be in place. The drunks that make downtown Juneau so charming are still here, and the locally owned businesses that were able to roll with the changes are still in business and are doing better than ever.
From all I have learned about Hyder, Alaska, it appears to be a great place to visit and possibly live. It has the best of two worlds -- one, it can be reached by road and then it in nestled in a remote part of Alaska. It is the farthest south that an Alaska town can be reached by highway!
The harbor in Juneau has the feel of a movie set -- it has been ruined by the big cruise ships.
Seward is a nice little town. The hike at Hardings ice field is a damn good day hike. Reasonably strenuous and we saw a bear and 2 cubs. We had a great lunch at Harbour Dinner Club. Surprisingly, sea food is expensive in Alaska. Expect to pay $20 per head. Another thing to do in Seward is the resurrection Bay Cruise. We went all the up to the Aialik Glacier. Lots of wildlife enroute... bald eagles, puffins, killer whales (we saw about 20!), humpback, lots of other birds, and also sea lions... many :).
Petersburg itself is a real gem, if only because it has not been ruined by the hordes of suspicious day trippers that the cruise ships disgorge, ruining Juneau, Sitka, and other places. Petersburg retains its isolated, small town feel and is surprisingly Scandinavian, even today.
