alaska, the "great land"

the pictures do not do justice to the scenery....but it is at least a glimpse into the beauty of the area.

glaciers are blue !! and the little chunks of ice near them are called bergie bits. good thing they dont run the movie Titanic while cruising !

the large mountain is Mt Edgcombe, an inactive volcano in Sitka

we were on the Holland America ship, Zaandam, it was small enough to be able to get into smaller ports and close to the glaciers in Glacier Bay.

everyone should see this beautiful place at least once.....unfortunately, pictures do not capture the majesty
