Thanks, I so very much want to go back there. Those were taken on the Edgerton Hwy a couple hours or so out of Valdez, Alaska. It's a dead end road but worth it.

I'm looking to finally get a real travel camera that can live in bad weather, preferably a Pentax WG-2 with GPS. The nice thing about using the Casio is the photos can be geo-tagged so if I forget where I took it, I can get the coordinates from within. You have to go to the source of the photo, you can't download the ones above, but if you go to the photo where it is linked from like on my photobucket, download to your desktop or where ever, you can right click the photo and browse the properties to get a GPS coordinate of where it was taken. Some times it is pretty accurate but sometimes off a hundred feet or so.

BE CAREFUL when photographing children and things you don't want stolen with the GPS in your phone or camera turned on, the location will no longer be a secret. Downloading from Advrider seems to strip personal data from the files.

End of the road, Kennecott Copper Mine (taken at midnight)

I'm surprised you didn't include a picture of the Kuskulana bridge- made in 1910. You rode over it on the way to Kennecott.

I hope you managed to take the tour through the mill when you were at Kennecott- that was well worth the $25!
