MENDENHALL GLACIER


Just outside Juneau.

It was the only glacier we got to see, since Glacier Bay, which was supposed to be the high point of the trip, was suddenly under attack by Nature with winds of something like 50 miles an hour and waves 30 feet high. The authorities had closed it down, so all cruise ships were sent south--fast!

This is where they took us instead of Glacier Bay.

MYSTY FJORD

Glacier Bay was closed down because of weather, so we didn't see any glaciers up close. This was our booby prize: the famous "monument" of Misty Fjord.  I, personally, assumed that overnight all the glaciers had melted away and ... well ... this was all that had been left of them to mock us!  Misty was far south of Glacier Bay, and apparently a very famous reserved area, (this wonderful "object" had been painted and photographed almost to death, I assume). It was not what Brigitte had planned on seeing--even if it was a beautiful area (glacier or not!)--one could see many breathtaking forests on the shorelines. Just what we needed: more trees!
