Valdez is not the easiest place to get to. In fact, it’s kind of a pain. But I guess that’s also what makes it more special because you have to work a little harder.
Here’s a photo I took on a gorgeous summer day in Valdez, with green snow-capped mountains, opaque blue water and boats bobbing in the harbor.
To get to Valdez, you either have to drive the long way around (we were coming from Anchorage and it took us about 5.5-6 hours) or you can take the ferry from various ports. But the dramatic natural beauty of the place was well worth the extra effort.
