Alaska Highway Summer Waterfall Scenery Valdez

Traveling the Richardson Highway in the summer towards Valdez, Alaska in the USA, the scenery is outstanding, especially at Thompson Pass where this massive waterfall flows.

Along the highway to Valdez, Alaska in the USA, the scenery is breathtaking, this particular area providing the beauty of a waterfall cascading over the rock ledges during the summer months. At the base of the waterfall, large boulders become saturated from the spray as the water hits the pool and continues on a rage downstream amongst the rocks.

Summer in Alaska is beautiful as the snow packs are melting and the ice is thawing creating massive waterfalls which highlight the highway scenery. Thompson Pass where this waterfall rages, is approximately 27 miles northeast of Valdez, Alaska and during the winter months, the snowfall averages about 550 inches. This leaves plenty of snow to create the summer scenery of waterfalls where the Richardson Highway climbs to a height of 2,678 feet.

At Thompson Pass, the scenery looks out over the valley below and the true Alaskan wilderness.
