With a little trepidation I signed up for the trip. My level of comfort on the water is somewhat challenged. I wanted to experience glaciers up close and personal and this was the risk/fear/price I was willing to take. I am so glad I did. To say it was spectacular would be an understatement.

The favorable weather made the experience even more memorable. The highlights... More

A rainbow of color with Fireweed, Indian paintbrush - every color of the rainbow, and about 50 other species. Rowing next to Walker glacier made my heart stop. We saw black bear, grizzly bear and many different kinds... More
