Valdez, Old Valdez, Bayside RV Park
and Valdez Glacier
The town of Valdez covers about 274 square miles. Population about 4,100. Industry - oil, commercial fishing, seafood processing, shipping, tourism, and post-secondary education. The Alaska pipeline ends in Valdez. Valdez gets more than 300 inches of snow annually. Nearby Thompson Pass records between 600 - 900 inches annually.
Valdez is the activity center for Prince William Sound. Its growth is due to trading, salmon canning, gold and copper mining. Valdez is home to five named glaciers - Columbia, Meares, Worthington, Shoup and Valdez Glaciers. The two RV Gypsies visited 4 of these 5 glaciers and photos are on this website. This is a town well-worth visiting and spending time in. And the local Radio Shack had a good computer technician.

WATERFALLS at Keystone Canyon
Near Valdez, Richardson Highway winds along the turbulent Lowe River in Keystone Canyon. The sheer canyon walls contain countless waterfalls and interesting rock formations. Note: (Richardson Highway was Alaska's first highway and began as a pack trial in the late 1800's with branches to Eagle and Fairbanks. The 364 miles of this paved highway constitute one of the state's most scenic routes. Keystone Canyon was named by Captain William Ralph Abercrombie, presumably for Pennsylvania, the Keystone state.
