Turnagain Arm

Turnagain Arm will take your breath away. Just head south out of Anchorage along Alaska route 1 (Seward Highway) and you can't miss it. Be sure to stop at Beluga Point. Watch for whales and bore tides. Don't walk on the sand/silt, as the extreme tides can turn it into dangerous quicksand. Also stop at Bird Point. It's got some similar views, as well as displays that explain the scenery, whales, and bore tides.

Here are a couple shots I grabbed with my Xpan:

Sadly my visit to Turnagain was blanketed mostly in fog and rain - but it did clear up slightly for me to get off a few shots closer to Girdwood. Since I had only one day here, I had to imagine what it looked like in much better light.
