Alaska - Prince William Sound Cruise
Wednesday 26th July, 2006
Whilst in Valdez, we took a day cruise to see some of the other sights around Prince William Sound. Not only did the weather cooperate (after they had a few consecutive weeks or rain), but the wildlife put on a hell of a show as well! This was the standout of the entire trip.
