Valdez, AK to Kenny Lake, AK

We left Allison Point Campground this morning, and before heading back north, we stopped in town to take on some fuel.  The service station at Airport Road is the least expensive in the area and $.10 lower than in town, but still not what I would call a good price.  We had to go slow getting out of their lot as it has a lot of potholes in it.  We headed north on the Richardson Highway and stopped at Worthington Glacier which is at about milepost 29.  Here are 5 photos taken there…it still wasn’t too easy to get around there as there is still lots of snow on the walking trail.  It might be better for the next group as a group of young men wanting to hike on the glacier took the snow shovel and offered to actually use it to clear some trails.











At milepost 82.5, we headed east on the Edgerton Highway toward the Wrangell Mountains.



It wasn’t too long before Ken spotted this black bear.  It didn’t pose for photos too long before going back into the trees.





We got situated in our campsite, then took care of some of the household work that stacks up.  Before dinner, we drove up the Old Edgerton Highway to the Richardson Highway, then south to the Edgerton Highway and back to camp.  Ken pointed out this unusual trailer he saw on the way to camp earlier today.  It appears to be a single wide mobile home encapsulated with rocks attached as though they were bricks.  I guess it must be for the insulation factor.  While out on our drive, we also saw a trumpeter swan.


And with that, we are back at the RV for dinner and relaxing.
