ALASKA       Juneau Glacier Bay Denali Seward

From Denali, we drove to Seward, on the Kenai Peninsula. That evening, we made plans for a boat trip to see Kenai Fjords National Park the next day. From the boat, we saw glaciers, orcas, and lots of birds.

Bear Glacier is very close to Seward. The dark stripes are dirt picked up on the edges of two glaciers that joined together.

We hoped we'd get to see this cave in Aialik Glacier fall into the bay, but it didn't.

Another piece of the glacier did fall into the bay with a loud crack.

There were lots of little islands, originally carved by glaciers.
