One of the glaciers we saw stretched about 25 miles inland as well. As you can tell it's quite gray, but should come as no surprise since glaciers need lots of rain and cold temperatures. The boat stopped port side for 30 minutes for us to view the glacier and to see calving. Here is our view.
|You can see a splash from some calving.|
|A small boat took viewers up close to the glacier.|
|Etta was pretty much carried the entire vacation since her ankle was still bothering her.|
|Another yummy meal.|
|One of Etta's many crafts from the Kids Room, a puppet.|
|It was pirate day in the Kids Room.|
|The kids' favorite elevator on the boat located in the atrium.|
|Entertaining themselves while waiting for portraits.|
|A nice passenger took a picture for us while we were waiting.|
|Riding in their favorite elevator again.|
|A picture without the kids, say it isn't so?|
|My beautiful girls.|
We only had one more day of cruising College Fjord before disembarking at Whittier, Alaska. We didn't plan on extending our vacation to see Denali so we took a shuttle tour to Anchorage to see my Aunt. On our way to Anchorage we stopped at a Wildlife preserve. I opted to stay on the bus since I wasn't feeling so great while the girls and Eric saw some great animals like bison, moose, and bears.
|The bears were lured out of their den with reindeer hot dogs.|
|Their was even a pen with babies. Looks of ohs and ahs at this one.|
