Only one way out of Whittier and its through this moutain. A route us cars have to share with a train.
Armed to the Teeth
You're looking at all I would have with me for the next 2ish months. Loaded up.
The tunnel out of Whittier had a very rustic feel to it. The Walls were exposed stone. Almost as if someone pick-axed their way through. Would you believe me if I told you a train was barreling down the opposite direction?
Not the true name of this location of course. We stopped after the tunnel to gaze upon the mystically misty landscape.
Unmaintained and still convinced some people to give me a lift Alaska's interior. Trusting people!
We arrived in the fog and we followed the fog all the way to Denali. Missed some amazing views I'm sure.

Clean plate club at the Moose's Tooth in Anchorage
Being from DC the LAST thing I wanted to run into in Alaska was traffic!
There's a fungus among us. Who knew fungi could be so artsy
You Shall Not Pass!
A bridge not too far away from Hurricane Gorge. If my memory serves me well. We stopped to see the sights as well as take a bathroom break.
My view from where I ran into the woods for a quick pit stop
Though the bark was burnt, it had a beauty and order to it
Standing on the bridge over this raging little river. Sure wouldn't want to cross it on foot. Was this Hurrican Creek?
Meet Randy and Gillian
Ah this turned out much better. I present Randy and Gillian. Brother and sister on a family quest.
My first real good look at the unique dispersed forests in Alaska. Towering pines with plenty of room to grow between them.
We pulled off on the side of the road to get a good look at the foggy landscape and I decided to quickly snap a picture of the unique vegetation just at my feet. Never seen this eerie plant back in Maryland.
