Valdez is the southern terminus of the oil pipeline crossing Alaska from the North Slope Oilfields.
There is a small hard-to-find slate/gravel road on the Northwest side of town. It goes for miles and miles, climbing higher and higher towards the glaciers. You have to ford a river on the way since the bridges are long gone.
Looking back and down towards Valdez
It was a great day to climb through the clouds. I wish I could describe the fresh air and all of the smells associated with this drive to the sky.
