The town of Valdez, as seen from the air. A former Gold Rush town, Valdez is located at the head of a fjord on the eastern side of Prince William Sound -- the northernmost port in North America that is ice-free year-round. Today, it's a commercial fishing port, freight terminal and the southern terminus of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. The town is surrounded by the heavily glaciated Chugach Mountains and sits at 61-degrees north latitude.
