a short trip

I had some work in Valdez, Alaska and made a raod trip out of it. I took along my wife (Dian) and my Mom. Since the silver salmon are running in Prince William Sound, we squeezed in a little fishing. Here's some pics.

This is me, my Mom, my wife and a silver salmon. This particular fish will be next appearing at the Oink.



Here's the pile of silvers we caught.



Valdez is at the south end of the Alaska pipeline. This is me standing next to 20% of the domestic crude supply and another shot of the pipeline.
