Gakona to Valdez

More pictures from the drive and a few from Valdez. The fourth of July in Valdez is a very busy time. Several RV parks like drive-in theaters, full of vehicles and people. There is a fish hatchery with a weir that closes off the stream that the salmon home in on. The hatchery was closed when we were there, so the fish just backed up in the stream. At high tide, the seals have a feast. At low tide, the fish fill the stream bed, an amazing sight that is hard to capture.

  1. Looks like you are having quite the adventure. 😉 I bet that was especially fun having some more family to join you during parts of it. You mentioned the horrible road in one section. Hopefully some of the roads will be fixed on your journey back. My parents said that at the beginning of “the travel season” up there is when they start fixing all the damage caused during the winter.

    1. We are having a great time, and now that the boys are here, we are more busy. Luckily, we don’t plan to go back down the Tok Cutoff. Tok is a major intersection, so even though we will be back there, we will be on the Alaska Hiway which has been the best road so far.
