We’ve actually been here for nearly a week, but as we figured, we would be challenged with Internet connectivity in some of our more remote locations. Well, we started out in one such place — Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve — but boy! were there other things to do besides write posts and work on our website!!
In review, we stayed at Glacier Bay Lodge right in the park for five days and nights, giving us plenty of time to take it all in. Highlights of our time in Glacier Bay include:
»» We took a day trip on a boat 65 miles up into Glacier Bay — all the way up to Johns Hopkins Glacier. It was incredible!
»» We went whale watching — Fred’s photos of this amazing day posted shortly.
»» We rented sea kayaks and explored the cold bay waters of Barlett Cove.
»» We hiked the local trails through the spectacular rain forest here in southeast Alaska.
Below are a few of Fred’s photos of a bit of the wildlife we encountered in Glacier Bay NP – more to follow when Internet connectivity permits.
If you click on a photo, you can see a larger version of it. You can also use the arrows at the bottom (click on the photo if they disappear on you) to scroll through all the photos in this album. To close the album, click on the ‘X’ in the top right corner.
Incidentally, seeing a wolf is a very rare occurrence. Seeing one eating the carcass of a moose calf is practically unheard of! So Nat Geo!!!
