We just returned from our 12 day adventure in Alaska. We spent the first weekend in Juneau. Then we spent the next 10 days on a sailing expedition through Glacier Bay. I look forward to sharing several posts on our trip.

What is a glacier?  I have to admit, I did not know until I saw Mendenhall Glacier. I thought it was a huge conglomeration of steep mountains of ice. I’ll be posting pictures of the different glaciers we saw. Some of them have blue ice! Here’s my post on our visit to Mendenhall Glacier.

We had so much fun doing so many activities: sailing, hiking, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, polar plunging, playing games, and even painting. Every day was it’s own whale watching expedition. Our guides Blaine and Monique were awesome sailors, leaders, chefs, naturalists, and teachers. We saw so much wildlife–whales, porpoises, sea lions, otters, fish, black bears, brown bears, mountain goats, and all kinds of birds. Puffins were my favorite!
