Yesterday (Thursday) at Aialik Glacier, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.
There are a lot of great things about living in Seward, but number one has to be how close we are to Aialik Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. The Travel Channel included this area when it did a two hour special on the 10 greatest wonders of the world. Not the U.S., the world! And I’m just a short boat ride away for one of them.
I traveled so much last year, I never made the short trip to the Bay, and so far I hadn’t made it this year either – it should be a crime to live so close and not go at least once a year. It is kind of like being a kid living in Anaheim and not going to Disneyland, except for a nature loving photographer, Aialik Bay is 100 times better then Disneyland! Granted, I know some kids that might disagree.
I have photos with and without the tour boat, but I felt by including a the 150 passenger vessel, would give the viewer a real feel of for the amazing size of this tidewater glacier. I often wait and visit on a sunny day – but the wonderful thing about a glacier on a cloudy, stormy day is it helps emphasise the wonderful blues. On a sunny day, our eyes hardly see the blue. More Kenai Fjords National Park photos.
