Drove through Keystone Canyon from Chitna to Valdez. It was awesome to drive through, and we stopped at Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe falls. Great views to stop on the side and take in the view.

The highlight of our drive to Valdez. We had a clear sunny day and could stop and watch the view. We were told that we got a good day, usually when its rainy, the route is foggy and people miss the whole scenery.

Our drive from FL to AK via AlCan Highway yielded many breathtaking views. Driving thru Keystone Canyon was among the best! We drove thru twice!! Were especially impressed by the massive number of waterfalls, including Bridal Veil and Horsetail. Exquisite!
