We took a four day weekend, and decided to go to Valdez and spend some time in the mountains. Abby's parents were away in Cordova for the weekend, watching her little brother Zak attempt to reach the State Basketball Tourney (sadly, they lost the final game by 3 points), so we decided to bring a travelling party. The weather has been windy, windy, windy for the past month and a half, with bluebird skies but no snow. We were hoping for mountains of powder, but unfortunately it had all blown away. Regardless, the trip was great, and we were able to enjoy the killer views all weekend.
