Beautiful winter wonderland in March. Many frozen waterfalls...even saw some people ice climbing on one.

Driving through the Keystone Canyon is absolutely amazing. It's not really a tourist destination, as much as it is a place you're required to drive through to get to Valdez. And it's definitely worth it stopping to see the 2 waterfalls there!

Lots of lovely waterfalls. Ride up to Thompson's pass. Beautiful drive. One of the prettiest I have ever seen.

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

The drive is always beautiful and ever changing, beautiful waterfalls and glacier views, the old railroad tunnels and caves, also great area for hiking and rafting.
