Still in Alaska…


Part of Juneau’s waterfront.

 

Last week I posted an image of frozen water,

better known as Mendenhall Glacier.

We had to wait for our ride down to return.

We had this little bloke (and his siblings)

to keep us company while we waited.

Goodbye Juneau.

Next stop Skagway.

shine faintly with a wavering light.

While cruising into Juneau I sighted

the glimmer of lights far ahead.

 

About an hour later we passed the Disney Wonder,

also on its way to Juneau, Alaska.

 

 

The following night I captured

the glimmering reflection of moonlight

in Glacier Bay.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Odyssey

~~~~~

odyssey

a long wandering and eventful journey

I am inclined to suggest that any journey

originating in Australia and visiting

the northern hemisphere

could be described as an ‘Odyssey’.

Last year’s travel to Canada took us about

16 hours flying time to reach Vancouver Island

to the start of our Canadian/Alaskan adventure.Falling snow on the Columbia Ice-field was

an event we had not counted on.

Our sled ride on the Mendenhall Glacier was wonderful.

Followed by the Red Carpet treatment

when boarding our

Rocky Mountaineer

Gold Leaf Carriage.

 

 

 

Our Final day, not included in the tour,

was a visit to Wiseman,

a very small township

inside the Arctic Circle.
