Whittier, gateway to the Prince William Sound
The town of Whittier is surprisingly close to Anchorage. With luck on hitting the tunnel schedule, you can be there in an hour.

On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’re going to talk about going to Whittier. It’s not just for tourists, it’s a threshold to the ocean and the wilderness.

There’s a ton of skill involved and a lot to learn, and these guys are great at talking about it. LISTEN HERE
