The drive from Anchorage to Seward is a beautiful combination of water and mountain views. The route follows Alaska Route 1 south along Turnagain Arm and connects to Alaska Route 9  through Moose Pass. Route 9 ends at Seward, and it’s the only road in and out of town.

During my drive during a Memorial Day weekend (late May for readers outside the U.S.), the weather was a mix of rain and sunshine.

I saw a rainbow after a shower near Moose Pass.
