Mountains and landscape along this road are among the best I have ever seen. Both sides of the road have gorgeous mountains and waterfalls. It is mind boggling to see the very high markers along the road to guide the snow plows in winter.

You have to drive throw it to get to Valdez. It's a beautiful drive and awesome views of the water falls and the river that runs throw it. You have to stop to take pictures of the awesome waterfalls.
