Final Alaskan Views: Turnagain Arm

September 11. We left the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and headed back towards Anchorage. We had only a few hours left in our amazing trip. We hoped to see beluga again in Turnagain Arm, and this time maybe get a better photo. But I guess the tides were wrong. There is a ferocious tidal current and huge range in this part of the world: you can get an idea of the current in this photo:

We did snap a few final photos along the way before reluctantly getting in our Toyota Matrix and heading to the airport for the long flights home.

Views of Turnagain Arm and the surounding mountains that rise from the sea:

Some panoramas from different viewpoints:

I actually explored this little island a bit ...

and found this cool tree:
