I picked up a magazine assignment to photograph a fisherman in Cordova. I’m thrilled, because the timing perfectly correspondes with the amazing shorebird migration. We had a wonderful time here last year, but weren’t sure if we were going to return this year – this made that decision easy!
We normally travel to Cordova via the Alaska State Ferry from Whittier, but the road to Whittier was closed thanks to a landslide. This forced us to make the long drive around to Valdez just to catch the ferry. That’s ok, it is a beautiful drive! We timed it so that we would pass through Glennallen right at sunset Sunday night so the we could photograph the Wrangell Mountains. Sunset wasn’t anything special, but the mountains sure are!
