    went fishing out of Whittier, Alaska, yesterday, 4-16-05, with my friend Tracy, Bart & Ken

    this was taken on our way there, out looking across Baluga Point

    this is the narrow tunnel we had to pull the boat thru, it was only about 15 feet wide, and one way only, you have to pay a toll to go thru to get to the city of Whittier, and they have times schedules to go thru,for allowing traffic to come and go

    after the wind died down, we were able to get some nice weather for photo ops....

    we are actually fishing in the ocean, but the surrounding area, makes it look like a lake...

    we beached the boat, for nature calls, what a beautiful area..

    The 'new' mole tunnel is a big improvement. Just a few years ago you the only way to get there by land was by train. YOu had to load your car up (if you were crazy enough to need your car in Whittier) on the train and take a very short ride thru the mountain. It was kinda funny. And a big deal when they built the tunnel.

    Cool report. Makes me miss AK big time.

    Reminds me a little of Lake Tahoe in the spring before all the snow has melted off of the mountains. Breathtaking!
