second day in Valdez
We got up early this morning to go around the bay to the fish hatchery. We were told that sometimes the bears come out of the nearby forest to catch fish there. It was only a short drive and we were very blessed to find a young bear fishing in the creek there near the hatchery. It was fun to sit on a bench and watch the bear catch his fish then eat it and have the sea gulls clean up his leftovers. We had hoped to get a tour of the pipeline terminal, but they must not give those tours anymore. It was a nice morning. We have eaten lunch and will break camp and head back north.
