|Long day.... we drove 240 miles to Valdez. When we left this morning we thought maybe we would just go as far as Glennallen.
The road to Glennallen had a 25 mile stretch that was narrow winding with no passing lanes and very few turnouts. There was also some construction and lots of heaves or 'whoopie doo's'. The road got wider with truck and passing lanes but still had the heaves to watch out for. The scenery was great when you had time to watch.
We stopped at the Caribou Hotel/Cafe for lunch and decided to put a few more miles on the road and ended up in Valdez.
To sum up the drive to Valdez... the scenery was what we thought Alaska would be like. We have seen lots of beautiful country here. This drive was worth the whole trip. It is hard to show you in pictures and even in words. We must have said "WOW" a hundred times today.
We drove into town and the RV parks were very crowded and tight so we went out of town a couple miles and are staying at Valdez Glacier park. We are in the woods and have electric. Right now we are planning on a couple days here. We will decide for sure once we start checking out Valdez.
