    Monster cabbages! Most veggies are humongous during the summer season as the plants get to grow until midnight. During summer, Alaska experiences 20 hours of sunlight. Sunset is at 11:30 pm and sunrise happens at around 4-4:30am.

     
  15. The City of Whittier. 

    One of the smallest towns that I’ve been to (total population of around 200 people). The only access to the city by land is through a 2.5 mile tunnel, the 2nd longest highway tunnel in N. America. However, the heart of the city is its harbor - which is a passageway to Prince William Sound. The Portage Glacier trail hike also begins here.
