Honolulu

The week before my train journey I had been to Honolulu, in sun-drenched Hawaii. You can imagine that I was very surprised to see this sign in the middle of the Alaska wilderness.

Yes, there is a Honolulu in Alaska as well. Without the macho surfers, girls in bikini and swaying palm trees though. My Ride Guide tells me that Honolulu was named in 1913 by a local prospector who dreamed of warmer places…

After Honolulu Creek the train crosses the tree line and enters the Interior Alaska-Yukon taiga.
