Default Re: Diamond Princess 5/15 Alaska Review & Pics

A significant reason to consider the train is scenery, history and engineering. Avis is the only major car rental, there are 2 independents PB Cruises and Sourdough. I recommend on a drive - going 75 miles one way to Emerald Lake and return. Scenery significantly drops off after this point. Stop a the Gold Rush Cemetery and do the drive toward Dyea and stop at the Slide Cemetery. But more important stop at the Park Service visitor center for some good background that will enhance your trip.
