We headed toward Girdwood which you drive along the coastline through the Chugach National Forest. Simply beautiful scenery very camera friendly. Spring thaw was going on so many waterfalls off the rock formations. Plenty of hiking trails - very lovely!

There are some great camping spots and hiking trails through the National Park. It's located just off the highway about an hour drive south of Anchorage. Portage glacier in the main attraction.

The drive along Seward highway is spectacular. You can't help but stop and enjoy nature in all its glory. Be warned the views are so perfect they look fake in person and in film. But its worth it, take the picture and enjoy.

I can't put into words the beauty of this place. If you stop at the Beluga Point, look up on the other side. You might see mountain goats people-watching. Oh and you'll see some strange tourists fetching waterfall water on the side of the road...More
