Alaska: Glaciers




In addition to all the amazing animals we saw on our day cruise of Kenai Fjords National Park, we also had some close encounters with glaciers.  We had been close to Exit Glacier before, accessed by land, but this was our first time seeing any from the ocean.  The wall of ice really was massive, and as we got closer we could see all the beautiful blue tones in the ice, and all the little chunks of ice floating the water.   From time to time we could see pieces calving off, and hear them as they crashed into the water.
