Glacier Bay, Alaska

Hello Everybody

We are in the home stretch, sailing through Glacier Bay in Alaska where it’s cold, gray and snowy. But, we have seen plenty of glaciers. The size of these things, and the way they move, is simply incredible. The photos here include Margerie Glacier —a giant river of ice—that moves 7 feet a day. This glacier is 250 feet high–the equivalent height of a 25 story building.

Tomorrow we will be making our way to Skagway where we will do some whale watching.
