I'm still recovering from vacation and trying to catch back up on life, so I thought I'd post some of my favorite pictures from our awesome Alaskan vacation! If you ever get a chance to go on an Alaskan cruise, run, don't walk, to your nearest cruise ship!
My parents got a suite with a balcony on the back of the ship. It was AMAZING! Here we are still in the Seattle port.
This is Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska. It is a shrinking glacier and used to come all the way out to where I stood taking this picture! It was so blue and pretty.
We took an amazing train ride 20 miles up into mountains. Can you see the stick bridge we drove over? It was so scary and so cool all at the same time! The view down was STEEP.
From 17 miles in we had a view of our cruise ship at the port!
We spent one day in Glacier Bay which is a world heritage site. They only let 2 cruise ships in per day. They said the glacier rarely calves (which is when it thunders and falls) but it did it probably 5 or so times while we were there! It was really exciting to watch... even more so since we had spiked coffee. Yum.
This was the other cruise ship in Glacier Bay with us. Can you believe how pretty the water is? I always thought Alaskan water would be blackish.
We were on a cruise where there were icebergs; we just HAD to have a king of the world moment!
Bald eagles in Ketchikan! The two on the left are babies and the one on the right is an adult. They were all over the place!
