Today's drive was 207 miles through some amazing scenery.
Being one of the first (as usual) to arrive at the park we got our choice of sites, we chose site 11. Bear Paw Adult Campground is located along the harbor, the views out our back window were great.
Our short travel meeting was followed by a small cookout with 8 of our new friends, good food and good friends, throw in some adult beverages and we all had a great time.
Our crazy photographer
Bunnies abound in this campground
Today was a free day in Valdez, we decided to check out a few places in town.On Good Friday 1964 Valdez was hit by 9+ earthquake that wiped out the town. It has since rebuilt itself a few miles down the road.
This is what the old town looks like today.
We then took a ride along Dayville Rd which is on the opposite side of the harbor. All along the road folks were fishing and salmon were spawning.
One of the recipients of all the spawning salmon.
Found another great seafood market, Peter Pan Company, now our freezer is more than stocked.
Out the door early (8am) so we can get good seats for our Prince William Sound cruise. The weather was great and the waters were calm, Dave was able to enjoy the day with out any medication.
So glad Dave was able to enjoy this cruise.
Orca whales, none ever came completely out of the water just came up for air and down again they went. We also caught glimpses of humpback whales, small spouts of water but no breaching or surfacing, no pictures.
Icebergs from the Columbia Glacier
Thought this one looked like a porpoise or dolphin
Meares Glacier, while we never saw any real calving we did hear lot of cracking
An amazing day experiencing nature's beauty, words can't do it justice.
Starting tomorrow we have 3 travel days, tomorrow night we're back in Tok.
Until next time...
