Hi, from Valdez, AK!,
Today is the day for our Columbia Glacier Cruise!! The weather is not great, but we plan to make the best of it.
Another glacier cruise.
These two islands were beautiful to me. We were told that we might see Bald Eagles.
But not today, however still interesting.
Interesting formation of rock. Can you see the face in the picture below?
From here we could see Anderson Glacier and Anderson Falls.
I could share 230 pictures but I won't; just a few highlights.
The glacier field before we got to the Columbia Glacier was amazing.
Here's the Columbia Glacier. This glacier is receding. I believe our skipper, Karen, said it has receded twelve miles since 1988.
On our way back we did see some Sea Lions.
And we saw little Otters
We also saw whale. I got his fin but from afar. Picture not worth posting.
Us gals. Such a balmy day!! Thinking positive.
We did have a nice time inspiite of the cold and rain.
Back on land.
After we ate, we headed out to a fish hatchery.
Now it is onward to Whittier by ferry in the morning.
