Highway Scenes

The Glenn and Valdez Highways during fall

This final page takes in both the drive to and from Valdez. It was the turn of August to September, and that is fall, with the tundra turning colors. Without much direct sun, the colors are subdued, but when it comes to the tundra, I think that is normal. The Glenn Highway is a major east-west road. The Chugach Mountains are in the background.
