Alaska – Valdez

We stayed a couple of days in Valdez along the coast in the southeast of Alaska, unfortunately during the busiest weekend of the year due to the 4th of July (Independence Day). Nature and wildlife is amazing and keeps surprising us. Already the road trip from Glennallen to Valdez is worth the trip but than comes the huge amount of bald eagles and the trip in the Prince William Sound to Columbia Glacier, the second largest tidewater glacier of North America.

We verbleven een paar dagen in Valdez langs de kust in het zuidoosten van Alaska, jammer genoeg tijdens het drukste weekend van het jaar gezien de nationale feestdag (4 juli). De natuur is fantastisch en blijft ons verbazen. Alleen al de rit van Glennallen naar Valdez is de moeite maar dan komen nog de vele Amerikaanse zeearenden en de trip in Prince William Sound naar de Columbia gletsjer, de tweede grootste gletsjer onderhevig aan getijde in Noord-Amerika.
