I flew into Anchorage with zero visibility on our itinerary.  I literally had no clue where we’d be going or what we’d be doing.  Little did I know that Ryan’s wonderful boss who lives in Alaska had orchestrated the most incredible itinerary for us.  I flew in Saturday night, then Sunday morning we hopped in the car and began an incredible little road trip around the state.

Seward was the first stop on our itinerary.  Traveling from Anchorage to Seward takes about two and a half hours by car.  The route travels along AK-1 which winds between Resurrection Bay and Chugach National Forrest.  In short, the drive is spectacular – snowcapped mountains, a bay filled with beluga whales, alpine meadows.  We stop at the midway point in Girdwood and eat humongous old fashioned donuts and apple fritters at the aptly named Alpine Café and Bakery.  We continue driving until we reach Seward.
