On April 13th I set out on a two-week long road trip with my best friend from college. We left the San Francisco Bay Area and headed to Seward, Alaska. Morgan Wodhams is the captain of a tour boat in the Kenai Peninsula for Major Marine Tours.

What ensues is a chronological order of our trip through the first part of the tunnel. Needless to say, it was cold and there were elements to deal with. Above is Nick at the entrance, weighing our options for the afternoon. Continue Reading →
