Lippi In Alaska - Glacier Bay - Part 3

Hi Pals,


Poor Lippi - he told me he had the worst headache the next morning.   It's a good thing he was spending the day on ship cruising to Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska because he didn't feel like moving much.  It was a good day to sit on the balcony and watch the world float by and take a nap or two, or three, or more.

Mario's mom here - The ship sailed up a 20 mile long channel into Glacier Bay.   A Park Ranger from Glacier Bay National Park boarded the ship and explained things along the 20 mile ride.  At one time the glacier ran the entire length of that 20-mile strip.     Here's a googled map showing the route - we were in the channel on the back side of the park
Lippi said it was getting colder the deeper they traveled through the passage into Glacier Bay.   The fresh air cleared his hangover tho!

Ice Falls/Waterfalls coming off mountins.

Ice Berg - YIKES - Hope Lippi's ship doesn't sink.

Lippi sees his first glacier and a "hush" fell over the entire ship as all passengers listened to the Park Ranger on the room's TV.

Look at all those pretty colors too!   Awesome!

B O O M !  Lippi said a chunk of ice fell off into the water, making such a loud boom that it scared him so much he jumped way up to the ceiling and banged his head.  It was so scary!

Here you can see where some has already broken off and slid down hill.
This glacier has a big hole in it.   M said she doesn't want to be on the water when it finally cracks and falls into the sea.  It may create a wave so huge it can be seen in China!  he he (she's just kidding.)

Sailing back out of the channel into Glacier Bay and towards Skagway, Alaska - lots of sea lions (above pic) and Sea Otter were seen frolicking in the water.   

SIL celebrated a birthday that night.  Lippi said the cake was delicious!

Lippi was so tired, he said it's time for bed now.  I'll be back again tomorrow with Part 4.  (We have about 2 or 3 posts left, so we hope we aren't boring you too much!)  Lippi  hopes you'll be back too.

You couldn't bore me. Looks like Lippi had a blast! It's a shame what global warming is doing to those Glaciers.

What fun for Lippi to be there.

My humans were there exactly 2 years ago. Brings back wonderful memories. They were not on a cruise, but they took a day boat trip into Glacier Bay.
