Near Alyeska


Carol and I traveled to Alyeska mountain to have dinner at the top. It never dawned on us we might need reservations. Well we made reservations for the next night. Afterwards we drove to Girwood for a hot cup of brewed coffee and stop to mail postcards. (Man that is a full time job keeping up with postcards)

The next night our reservations were for 9pm. Great choice. We were one of may be 6 people eating dinner.

We rode the mountain tram to the top at eight pm. Walked around for an hour. Beautiful but cold. The white glaciers were all visable.

This path leads to the very top.


Carol and I were seated next to the window, we could see the glaciers and as evening fell it was captivating.
Now for the food, wow!
