I'm in Valdez right now with nicole, kir, shae, and michael. During the '64 quake (which was a 9.2 that lasted FOUR MINUTES), the location of old Valdez settled under the tide level, so they moved the town 4 miles away. Also, the tsunami that resulted from the quake killed 30 or so people here who were waiting on the dock for a ship to arrive at the time. It also killed 12 people on a beach in Crescent City, CA. The one we had the other day was a 7.9, and it lasted 30 seconds.

Being here is sooo fucking surreal, but also incredibly beautiful. Apparently the drive here is insanely cool, but I slept through all of it last night (except the part where we pulled over and played in the snow near Glenallen).
