  • Alaska 2008: Day 6 (Glacier Bay)

    Posted on June 14th, 2008 Jeff Keller 2 comments

    We spent our sixth day cruising through Glacier Bay, Alaska. If you like glaciers,
    this is the place to be. After the link I’ve got a bunch of photos, plus some
    cool movies of glaciers calving.


    Morning balcony view


    One of many glaciers in Glacier Bay


    See those tiny brown things? Those are brown bears.


    Calving glacier


    Lots of blue ice floating around


    Cool striations in the ice


    Aren’t their feet cold?


    Our ship would just park in front of a glacier and wait for things to happen


    Then, you’ll hear a "crack", and the ice collapses into the Bay.


    Yours truly, trying to stay warm


    Yet another glacier


    They opened up the bow of the ship for glacier viewing


    Love the blue ice


    We had guides from the NPS onboard… here they’re on their way home

    And now, two movies that I put together from still photos:

    The next gallery will be the last one from the cruise portion
    of this trip: College Fjord!
