If you're looking for whales and waterfalls, blue glaciers and sharp-toothed mountains, calm trout ponds and stormy ocean fjords, there's enough visual overload along the Seward Highway in Alaska to fill a hard drive with digital pictures, according to National Geographic. This road trip is about 130 miles. Make sure you stop at Chugach State Park where you’re sure to witness moose, Dall sheep, and bald eagles. You can pull over anywhere along the route to go hiking. Some of the glaciers are accessible by foot or boat.
