Stormy Seward!

Ron Niebrugge Alaska, Photos, Travel 9 Comments

Resurrection Bay, Seward, Alaska.

Big waves, high tides and hard winds hit Resurrection Bay yesterday, Seward, Alaska.

These benches sit along a bike trail on the Seward Waterfront.  The bike trail should be visible in the photo, but it is buried under a foot of water, mud and rocks.  This wave actually broke over the tops of the benches, I had to run back to keep dry.  Large rocks were washed up on to the Sealife Center’s parking lot.  The forces of nature are amazing.

I guess we didn’t have it that bad.  According the the Anchorage Daily News, a Coast Guard Station much further West from here measured wind speeds of up to 178 mph!

    Not that I have heard of, but the bike trail is closed because it has been undermined in areas – that is a bummer, I like that trail.

  2. Great image. Glad you didn’t have winds that strong while you were taking this photo or the world might have lost a great photographer! Scary.

  4. Ron, cripes! I heard the storm was bad. You really captured it in this photo. Well done. Also enjoy your photo of the alpen glow. Have a great new year.
    Peace
