... time we turned a corner we had to stop and admire the vista. The car was full of Awes and Ahhs. Then when we turned down the Valdez Road it changed again. Lots of red ground colours and huge glaciers right in your face. Its just been an awesome days drive.
Valdez is where the Alaskan Oil Pipeline ends, that's the one I saw out in Coldfoot. This is also where they had the huge Oil ...

... but didn't see any. The reason being a forest fire in 2004. The fire destroyed all the tundra and lichen they eat. It could be 60 years before they return here.

To top off the day we enjoyed the excitement of ..... doing laundry!!! Tomorrow is the kayaking trip to Columbia Bay, in and around icebergs that have calved from Columbia Glacier. The weather looks pretty dicey, so I may bring a Grammy-cicle back to Texas next week to thaw ...

... down a slide into floating cages in the harbour. Pretty bloody and gruesome as you can imagine and such a sweet aroma. Once everyone has finished gutting and chopping up their fish the floating cages are towed out to sea and dumped into the ocean. A very good reason not to swim in Valdez harbour if you ask me. Good thing it's not in Australia or there'd be a shark feeding frenzy.
