You can only get to Whittier by water or by traveling through the mountain through Whittier Tunnel, the longest tunnel in North America. It is one lane...and shares space with a train.
This is the tunnel opening to two and a half miles of claustrophobic terror!
An over generous about of snow and ice kept me from getting close to the harbor.
As quirky has it, most of the 200+ residents live in this
Army barracks condo conversion, Begich Towers.
And then there is the abandoned military building, the Buckner Building.
The sites upon leaving Whittier were as lovely as Alaska gets!
