|Approaching Worthington Glacier|
|Jan. 24, 2014 an avalanche blocked the only road into Valdez for over a week.|
The river cut this cave in the avalanche.

At our campsite we met Andy and Rita, fellow Roadtrekkers. They are from California. Also visited with Dan and Helen from Kansas. They have been doing a lot of fishing and blessed us with some frozen salmon. Look forward to having that.
On the road again Tuesday July 22
Another beautiful sunny day. Temp in the 60's. We drove to town. Met a gal who calls Valdez home but lives solo in her 32 ft. boat in the summer (to get away from the tourists). She said even though they get 27 feet of snow annually the streets are cleared by morning after a four foot snowstorm. She says we are the richest town in Alaska because of the taxes from the pipeline.
It was a day of cleaning the freezer, grocery shopping, washing the RV and I worked on the blog at the library. A busy "catch up" day ended with more visiting with Tom and Linda and new Roadtrek friends. Also talked with a gal from Wisconsin who took the ferry on the way up. We have reservations out of Skagway with several stops on the way.
Have I mentioned how friendly people are. Yes, indeed.
