July 9, 2010 - Bald eagle in flight.
We hiked the 5 mile Goat trail, starting at the base of Horsetail Falls and climbing rapidly to the base of a splendid water body. Lunch was had and plenty of photo-ops exploited. However, the highlight of the day was the stopover on the shores of Valdez at the Solomon Gulch Fish Hatchery , frequented by bald eagles, juvenile bald eagles, and a ton of seagulls flying against the gorgeous backdrop of snow-crest mountains.
