They were going to make us on a flight-seeing tour! I couldn't wait.
It would be a perfect time to go visit the Valdez Public Library.
We read more about the Valdez Public Library on the city website.
There were a lot of murals throughout the library. This one above the nonfiction books was my favorite.
Then we went and had lunch. Something funny happened lunch.....I saw one rabbit and thought it looked tame. Then I saw another rabbit! And Mom saw a black rabbit the night when got here.
I found out that the rabbits were tame and every where. You can feed them and pet them....They are like cats in Iowa.
We took a little walk on the peer. It is so cool with the reflection of the pictures.
The water doesn't freeze in Valdez because it is too deep. It is over 800 feet deep.
We went back to the hanger and hoped Bill's plane started.
This is a picture of Barb and Bill. Barb was the teacher librarian in Valdez and he was the principal. They were cool.
Dad had to help Bill get the plane out and faced it to the runway.
I asked Bill a lot of questions.
Columbia Glacier coming out of the Chucach Mountains. It is going into the sea. It doesn't look super tall from the airplane but it is.
We saw a cool snow cave on the glacier. It looks little from up there but someone told us later that it is 3 stories tall inside and really pretty. The ice is blue inside of the snow cave just like the glacier.
Flying was a super COOL day. Thank you Pilot Bill and Barb for an AWESOME day.
