Where in the World is Gary? #229

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#228) is College Fjord, Prince William Sound, Alaska, USA

This college town has educated people like Isaac Newton, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Charles Darwin, and William Wordsworth. A popular activity here is gliding down the river on a flat-bottomed boat, propelled by a long pole.



The university here, founded in 1284, consists of 31 colleges, each with their own distinctive entrance gate.
