The morning we left Seward we started back toward Anchorage, the hub of our trip. We drove through Turn Again Arm again.
The dead trees are a result of the 1964 earthquake. Salt water invaded the Arm and killed the trees.
We stopped off at a lame animal preserve but the pictures "don't count" if the animals are behind fences when you are on Alaskan safari! We were disappointed not to have seen any bears and only one moose after two weeks. Part of the problem was once again the late spring. The salmon weren't running yet so the bear were not out eating salmon. The moose were calving and tended to stay hidden with their young.
We returned to Elmendorf Air Force Base for another night of camping and laundry. Our friends from Alabama, the ones who visited Yellowstone with us last year, were flying in to join us for the last week of our trip. We were so glad to have them come along.
