When skies were clear, they were glorious! We always took advantage of those days to travel back down the Richardson Highway, to explore Jeep roads, take short walks down trails and seek out the best mountain vistas.
One last view of the Valdez Small Boat Harbor
And one last drive back down the most scenic Richardson Highway.
Our views along the ascending crest of Thompson Pass.
|Here, I found a carpet of Alaska bellheather http://www.centralcoastbiodiversity.org/alaskan-mountain-heather-bull-harrimanella-stelleriana.html|
A stop by the Worthington Glacier offered us a different perspective this time. Most of the snow on the walking trail had melted as well as the ice on the pond.
What a treat, we also saw some tundra swans.
