Oh please, Valdez. Oh squeeze, Valdez. With ease, Valdez! So many rhymes! And such lovely times (you see what I did there), we had on a short trip to Valdez.
With Ben’s dad a.k.a. Poppi in town, we loaded up my parent’s camper (thanks so much Grammy and Papa) and hit the road on Monday morning. Sam was stoked!
It was a loooong drive with ‘holy craps’ amount of road construction, but we finally made it to Thompson Pass about 7 hours later and we hit the hills.
We hit the hay that night in an awesome campsite in Thompson Pass after a nice evening of rockfish tacos and campfire times.
The next morning, we headed into Valdez and stopped at Allison Point where we fished for silvers but only caught rotting pinks. Oh well, you win some, you lose some! It was a glorious day and so nice to be on the water.
We made camp out near Valdez Glacier and had another great evening.
The next morning, we explored the beach near Mineral Creek and watched giant chums swim up the little creeks. Whoa. So cool. We saw sea lions (maybe seals), lots of birds, and soaked in another wonderful day in Valdez. We spent lunch in Valdez town and explored some docks and boardwalks before packing up and heading home.
We are thankful for our time in Valdez and the sunshiney wonderfulness.
