You feel like you’re about as far away from civilization as you can get when you’re here. The cruiseship gets about as close to the glacier as is safe and your eyes are completely focused on catching the sluffing off of ice called calving. We saw this huge arch-shaped piece of ice, more like something you would see at Arches National Park in Utah. We waited and then it came crashing down. I caught it all on video. Pretty exciting.
This photo caught my attention because of the dramatic clouds that crawled up the side of the mountain heading towards the blue-hued glacier. The mammoth size of this flowing ice is quite awesome to see.
