After leaving central Alaska we headed south to Valdez for several days of clouds, rain, cold, and a really good time. We explored numerous glaciers in the area, and for two days rented a small boat and hit the sea for some fishing and camping. We caught 6 different kinds of fish (19 total fish) on what turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences of our entire summer. After a few days we even found comfort in the continual rain.
