We walked a short hike called the Boreal Forest Valdez Loop.
We enjoyed what views were available on this overcast day.
This will be a stop on our way back and hopefully the weather will permit better views of Mt. Sanford and Mt. Drum.
After an early dinner, we decided to go see if we could spot some of the better known wildlife in the area. We drove down Dayville Road right on the outskirts of town. The fish hatchery is on this road and bears are frequently seen here. However, this time we didn't see any. On our way back into town, however, we did a see a black bear near the U.S. Forest Service's Crooked Creek Visitor Center. By the time we were able to turn around, the bear was long gone. We did manage to get some pics of the rushing waterfall behind the center.
Made it back to the room and rested for tomorrow's adventures. Planning on fishing- hope the weather cooperates!
