Hi you all, I survived my Alaska vacation, despite being disconnected from the internet most of the time, a short case of motion sickness and a (not very) close encounter with a brown bear who’d been shot at a day prior of our visit to his territory. *g*
Ah well, to be honest, we had a wonderful time! :)
Most impressive was the up close and personal with the Hubbard Glacier. Our ship navigated pretty close to the 6 miles wide cliff face and we witnessed how it calved off icebergs the size of a 10-story building (so we were told). Well, it’s a darn imposing natural phenomenon for sure, especially the sound it produces – like a stretched-out and very loud thunder.
We’ve seen some beautiful other places too, here’s just a small selection of everything we saw:
Isn't it beautiful?
