Alaska: Rocky Coastline


The coastline of Alaska is just amazing.  My husband is beginning to convince me that the best way to see it would be by sailboat.  But, for this trip, we took a cruise ship on a day trip around Kenai Fjords National Park.   The ship could get right up to the shore, since it is literally mountains rising from the sea.  On the East Coast, everything is more gradual and you can 't get too close without running aground.
