USA, Alaska, Glaciers – who knew ice could be so fascinating and beautiful?

You might think a day cruising around two glaciers (Holgate Glacier and the Kenai Fjords) might be boring but you’d be wrong. It was mesmerising and I never got tired of just staring and staring.

Hope you agree?

Ice on the Ocean – pretty cool

USA – Now where? Alaska of course. 

Just started a 14 day trip to Alaska and Northern British. Columbia. So far scenery is moody and brooding and I’ve seen a seal’s  flipper! However have a later excursion looking for bears and whales so am hopeful to get that on camera. 

First stop were the glacial fjords at Holgate and Aialik.

And before we set off I visited Seward which was the port of departure and is known for its murals.
