For those with a naturalist streak, few places on earth compare with the wonders of Southwest Alaska. Brown bears amble along the hills and plains, and more than 240 bird species inhabit Alaska’s Southwest region. The region’s terrain ranges from a landscape of volcanoes in Katmai National Park created by the 1912 eruption of the Novarupta volcano, to the windswept Aleutian Islands that make a 1,000-mile sweep toward Asia.

LARRY BARNES

We took the inside passage on the Carnival Spirit the first week of June.  Two days in Anchorage then on to Whittier where we sailed to Glaciers National Park, Skagway, Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan. This was the most spectacular trip we have taken.  Great memories, beautiful pictures and every Alaskan was so proud  to tell us about their city. We will return soon!!
