Beautiful falls! The Bridal Veil Falls and Horsetail Falls are Just spectacular. There are a couple of miner falls, but the two larger ones are just Awesome.

Just when I thought I had seen the most amazing thing in Alaska! The trip south on the Richardson Highway is not to be missed, Thompson Pass, Worthington Glacier and Keystone Canyon are a few of your rewards for driving to Valdez Alaska. Clear your camera memory card, because you will need it here.

Fantastic time whitewater rafting through the canyon! Bridal Veil Falls is a great stop along the way, which gushes 800 gallons/minute-incredible!

The drive from Anchorage to Valdez is one more visitors should try to make. It can be done in one day, but if the weather is nice, I strongly recommend making it 2 days (with a stop at the Copper River Princess Lodge) because there are dozens of opportunities for pull-over pictures and short hikes. At the end of all... More

Hikers will find Glaciers and waterfalls in area so dress for the weather! Expect rain in summer, and possible snow the rest of the year.

What a wonderful ride through the canyon. Everywhere you look it's spectacular. Bridal Veil falls and horsetail falls, not to mention the sheer rugged beauty of the scenery . Slow down and enjoy the view!!

Since driving into Valdez is only via a single route, you can't miss passing beautiful Keystone Canyon, with its intensive waters rushing through. When we were there, the waters kept running big ice boulders that consistently broke from the nearby avalanche glacier through which the river flows. It was amazing to see.

Gorgeous! Breathtaking and there is a pull out to stop and take photos so please be safe and don't stop in the road as it is a blind curve.
