Glacier Bay Alaska, June 2014


Click for 38 pics in Picasa. We sailed North up Glacier Bay to the Margarita Glacier. Lots of wildlife including whales, seals and bald eagles very close to the ship. Lots of other glaciers along the way as well, but we spent an hour watching the Margarita Glacier.

The glacier was “calving” – shedding big blocks of ice every few minutes. The silence was broken by rumbling like thunder and sharp cracks as the ice crashed from the end of the glacier into Glacier Bay.

It was very cold, but invigorating and certainly never a dull moment the whole day.
