The highlight of our drive to Valdez. We had a clear sunny day and could stop and watch the view. We were told that we got a good day, usually when its rainy, the route is foggy and people miss the whole scenery.

Though it's a relatively short canyon compared to most, it has to have one of the highest concentrations of waterfalls per mile than any place in the USA. If you love waterfalls, beautiful scenery and interesting history, take the dime to drive through this short...More
