Took the trip North to visit Colleen and Lynne and their families. They live in Wasilla , about an hours drive north of Anchorage on the Park Highway. The weather was typical for this time of year. Gray. Colleen's husband, Gary , and I drove to Valdez to haul their boat home for the winter.
On the way we stopped and checked out the oil pipeline and a few glaciers. Alaska always amazes me with the enormous vistas. Truly Big Sky! We spent two days in Valdez fishing for silvers and caught three nice fish. The run was just ending but it was a very enjoyable time spent with Gary.
The week before the run was in full swing and everyone was limiting out. Our second day I caught a 4-6 pound fish but released it because I felt it too small. Needless to say that was the last fish we caught!
