Thrilling Day

Yesterday’s views of glaciers from a boat were very cool. But today, we did a helicopter tour that included landing on a glacier. Very impressive. Seeing the glaciers from the water and from the air is breathtaking; actually walking on them, touching the melting water is something else. Truly remarkable.

Approaching Taku Glacier. Thirty-six miles long and at 4,800 feet, the thickest glacier in the world.
