It's hard to imagine something this massive and beautiful.
These pictures don't do this glacier justice, but trust me when I say it was an amazing experience seeing this creation of God.
The picture with the people standing on the deck of the boat gives some semblence as to how massive this glacier is. We got really close to the glacier and the captain of the ship turned the ship in a circle for about 45 minutes so no matter where you were on the boat you got a really good view of the glacier.
We had absolutely beautiful weather. The sun was out. The temps were a little chilly, but nothing a sweatshirt and a hat oculdn't handle.
This was truly a dream vacation for me. Between the friends, family, scenery, weather and all other aspects I don't see how it could have been better.
Now my dream is to go back to Alaska. But not on a cruise. I couldn't nor do I want to replicate that dream, but I want to go landing. Rather seeing Alaska by land.
I'm looking at 2010 for another dream to come true, but we'll see.
PS..I'm checking the Juneau website every week to see what's going on and how expensive transportation is to the city.
Where is your dream vacation located? In the US? Over seas somewhere?
