In Keystone Canyon, about 17 1/2 miles out of Valdez along the Richardson Highway, Horestail Falls Creek cascades down a rock cliff before merging with the Lowe River. The road here parallels the original "Military Road" or the "Goat Trail" which was cleared just over 100 years ago. It was an important trail that both the military and gold miners followed to take them from the coast into the Alaska Interior.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's 710,231 residents (as per the 2010 United States Census) live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska is the least densely populated state of the U.S.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska
