The sun came out today!

It didn't start out sunny. In fact every day in Valdez has begun in a blanket of fog and clouds like this or thicker. In fact this is a photo after the deepest fog. That's the terminus of the Alaska pipeline across the harbor (I found out that there is indeed only one AK pipeline).

At midday the skies turned blue but the fog still hovered over the harbor. It was really bright and crisp and happy!

The next time I walked past a window I noticed that there really was water in the harbor. Amazing!

My hotel is near the ferry docks and the day stayed clear long enough for me to take these photos. The deepest white high on the mountains in the background are glaciers unless I am very much mistaken.

  1. Becky – I have really loved all the pictures you have shared of your trip. Was wondering how things were on the home front – did Sherman get any flooding? Hope everything is good to go when you get home. Judy C in NC
