Seward Highway

The Seward Highway extends 125 miles  from Seward to Anchorage, Alaska. It was completed in 1951 and runs through the scenic Kenai Peninsula, Chugach National Forest, Turnagain Arm, and Kenai Mountains.Turnagain Arm is a waterway into the northwestern part of the Gulf of Alaska. It is one of two narrow branches at the north end of Cook Inlet, the other being Knik Arm. Turnagain is subject to climate extremes and large tide ranges which can reach 40 feet and come in so quickly that they produce a wave known as a bore tide.
