A great diversion on the road from Anchorage

On a roadtrip south from Anchorage I diverted off the main road into the forest - stunning views, definitely worth it

just drive slowly and enjoy every breath you see the scenery, it is better if someone else drive and you just sit beside him/her... prepare your camera and stop everytime you need to make a picture. don't wait when you return to the same road. just like in the postcard.

This is a wonderful National Forest. Lots of lakes, rivers, waterfalls and glaciers. Beautiful snow capped peaks. Great hikes. We love this place.

We drove from Anchorage to Seward. Just over 3 hours, with several stops along the way; McHugh Creek, Beluga Point, Portage Glacier, Alyeska Resort. We saw two moose near Portage Glacier.

Beyond words beautiful! We took our time and enjoyed the drive taking several photos! The mountains were gorgeous and the water was the prettiest blue.

It's big, it's wild, and it's close to Anchorage. From easy day hikes to epic adventures, it's all right there. Find one of the many trailheads, leave a trip plan on the driver's seat, LOCK YOUR DOORS, and go have an adventure. Alaska waits!

You really need to take this drive in October when the trees are changing. People rave about the beauty of the trees in New England but the northeast has nothing on Alaska.

I hiked off the regular trails. The terrain can be challenging, but is a lot of fun. Just make sure people know where you are.
