BWCA – May 2012

This was a two man trip to the Basswood Falls area with Paul Otto. I can’t stop going back to this spot. There is always something new to see. With white water galore and pictographs within easy paddling distance this is a must see for anyone looking for a trip into the BWCA. We went […]

Valdez – Day 6

Ok if anyone was paying attention they might have known that I missed posting a blog for the last day in Valdez. I can tell I am back in the real world now because I have no time to post…to many things going on.  Including a giant hole that I just made the other day in the […]

Valdez – Day 5

I am not going to attempt to put this into words, I am only going to say that today was the experience of a lifetime. Thanks Bill.

Valdez – Day 4

This morning we started out by taking a ride to an overlook in the middle of Valdez. From this vantage point you can get a great look of the city, harbor, and surrounding mountains. The first 8 pictures are from the overlook. I took some panoramic shots from up here which I can’t wait to […]

Valdez – Day 3

Fishing Day! I’ve been thinking about this for awhile. It’s just fun to get out on the ocean or lake and do some fishing. Some friends of Bill’s parents were kind enough to let us use their boat. Thank you, whoever you are, because this was a fun day. First off, just sitting in a […]

Valdez – Day 2

This morning started out needing to make the Stan Stephens Tour to the Meares Glacier. The weather was overcast and rainy with a visibility of about 1 mile in Valdez. It was overcast enough that Bill’s dad wasn’t allowed to land in Valdez and their flight had to turn around. All the beautiful mountains that […]

Valdez – Day 1

I know in my last blog I said we would do two hikes today…my mind was willing, but my body needed a little rest. Our hike was an out and back 7 mile total hike on the Gold Creek Trail out to Gold Creek. A person can continue on all the way out to Shoup […]

Anchorage to Valdez, Aug. 14th

Since I met Bill, my brother in law, and found out he was from Alaska I have been on him to get a trip set up to his hometown of Valdez. After a couple of years of talking about it the opportunity opened itself for this week (August 14th – 21st). In the days leading […]
