Day 68 – Valdez to Tazlina River

Today’s Mileage 115
Miles to Date 5505
Miles Remaining 4151

We backtracked up the Richardson Highway, AK 4, from Valdez towards the Glen Highway, AK 1. We did not quite make it to the Glen Highway Junction through. We came to a large pullout by the Tazlina River and decided to have lunch. During lunch we checked the distance to the Kenai Peninsula and decided to spend the night where we were as we didn’t want to arrive on the Kenai Peninsula in the middle of the weekend. The Kenai Peninsula will be filled with locals from Anchorage in addition to tourist.

Today’s driving was mostly in rain and low clouds so I didn’t take any pictures besides plus the highlights of the Richardson Highway was covered on the way to Valdez.

Temperatures are still running in the low 50’s during the day and the low 40’s at night.
