Cruisin’ Through Glacier Bay, Alaska

I don’t think I’ve felt farther from civilization, then I felt in Glacier Bay, Alaska. It’s like you get a flat tire there, you’re gonna be eaten by wolves. Well being on a cruiseship, it could break down. I guess that’s not a bad thing. By the time you eat up all the food, another cruiseship is barreling through. You might get a little tired of the entertainment.

Not many people go out on deck, when cruising in Alaska. The air, even in the summer is quite cold, when the boat is moving. But the scenery is like nowhere else in the world. My guess is the only place close, would be up in Sweden and Norway, through the fjords, and down in New Zealand through Fjordland. Got to put those on my bucket list.

All Hands on Deck! Glacier Bay, Alaska

Well maybe not. The rain kind of kept people in while approaching Margerie Glacier. The deck was quite slippery. Good thing we were in a calm bay. On a cruiseship, traveling up through the bays was my favorite part of cruising. You get to see quite a bit, including wildlife up closer. Don’t forget the binoculars!

Tour Boat at Margerie Glacier, Glacier Bay, Alaska

Little late getting this photo out. Busy time of year.

Doesn’t this look a bit frigid. Well it actually was. Pieces of ice float by the tour boat as it approaches Margerie Glacier off to the right. I decided to go with a black and white HDR photo, with a little green showing through. You can see photos of the Margerie Glacier under “Categories”, then “Alaska”. We were watching from a distance on the comfort of a Cruiseship. Though it wasn’t that comfortable because it was raining at the time. Keeping the camera from the weather is always a challenge in circumstances like this. But you do what you can and just marvel at the majesty of it all. That is Alaska!
