The two RV Gypsies in Seward, Alaska
June 19, 2009
Seward is a picturesque town nestled on the shores of Resurrection Bay, where mountains rise majestically from crystal blue waters. Honored 3 times as an "All-America City", Seward is now over 100 years old, and reflects the spirit of the Alaskan pioneer. The weather in the summer ranges from 39 degrees to 63 degrees. The two RV Gypsies have not felt the 63 degree weather yet.
Traveling from Whittier to Seward, the two RV Gypsies were amazed to see a bicycle path that went for many, many, many miles alongside the roadway, not in the road itself.

And of course, more construction - a local resident told the two RV Gypsies, "We have 4 seasons in Alaska -- almost winter, winter, still winter, and construction."

It is common to have traffic signals at bridges because many bridges are narrow and have to be one-way at a time, however a few times the two RV Gypsies came across a bridge or two that fit 2-way traffic..
